Mamelodi Sundowns were busy snatching talent during June in a bid to improve on last season’s poor performance in the PSL
The PSL transfer season is hotting up, with Mamelodi Sundowns being the main culprits during June by making some notable signings.
Goal South Africa decided to highlight some of the top transfers of this month, with Sundowns dominating the headlines.
|CUTHBERT MALAJILA - MAMELODI SUNDOWNS
Maritzburg United’s hit-man Malajila was the team’s star performer last season, attracting the interest of the billionaire’s club Mamelodi Sundowns. He enters the side along with a string of new goal-scoring talent, but his 11 goals in 28 matches hold him in good stead. Malajila will add more decisiveness in the front of goal for the Brazilians, after they struggled to score regularly last season. Dove Wome will also join Malajila at Sundowns, another notable signing in attack for Pitso Mosimane.
|THUSO PHALA - SUPERSPORT UNITED
Platinum Stars’ pacey winger was the catalyst behind the team’s surprise second place finish in the PSL last season. Utilising his devastating speed and eye for goal, Phala joins SuperSport United to link up with former coach Cavin Johnson. Phala should bring creativity and more importantly goals to a side which struggled to find the back of the net on regular occasions last season.
Teammate and influential midfielder Ennocent Mkhabela will also join Phala at SuperSport. Nicknamed "Gerrard" Mkhabela was a leading figure in Dikwena's strong performances last season.
|TSHWARELO BERENG - MOROKA SWALLOWS
Bereng was a revelation for United FC during the Nedbank Cup in the 2012/2013 season and will aim to display his talent in the top-flight for the Dube Birds.
The attacking midfielder was not only a regular goal-scorer for the side from Cape Town, but also displayed proficiency in creating goals for the National First division team. With the loss of Bennet Chenene, Moroka Swallows will be searching for an influential figure in the midfield and Bereng could provide the neccessary impact they require.
|KENNEDY MWEENE - MAMELODI SUNDOWNS
Entering the fray at Sundowns as their fifth keeper, Mweene is certainly one of the best shot-stoppers in the PSL. His international experience trumps the majority of keepers in the league, while he has proven his ability to turn matches on many an occasion.
Whether he will replace the talented Wayne Sandilands remains to be seen, but his signature does enhance Sundowns keeper reserves and brings an experienced head to the squad.
|BRYCE MOON - MAMELODI SUNDOWNS
Moon’s vast experience in both Europe and South Africa means he will bring stability down the left flank for Sundowns, as the team strives to improve upon their performances from last season. Moon has proven quality as a full-back and will aim to enhance Sundowns strength in depth in their defensive department.
