Sundowns sign Reyaad Pieterse and Mosa Lebusa

The two players were heavily linked with the Brazilians, and they have finally signed on the dotted line

Mamelodi Sundowns have officially unveiled goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse and defender Mosa Lebusa as their players.

Pieterse joins the Brazilians from SuperSport United, while Lebusa was bought from Ajax Cape Town.

Coach Pitso Mosimane had promised more signings before the close of the transfer window, and he has delivered as he aims to build a formidable squad that will compete on all fronts.

Sundowns took to their social media on Friday afternoon to announce the two players.

Pieterse left Matsatsantsa about a week ago, citing a lack of game time as his main reason for wanting to move away from the 2017 MTN8 champions.

He will now compete with the likes of Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene and Razak Brimah for a place in the Sundowns starting line-up.

His arrival casts doubt on Thela Ngobeni's future at the club.

The former Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper has on a number of occasions expressed his frustration at not getting enough game time at Sundowns.

Ngobeni spend the second half of last season on loan at Free State Stars, and whether or not he will be allowed to leave remains to be seen. 

Lebusa on the other hand, was also wanted by Chiefs, who pulled out of the race after a huge offer that was tabled by Sundowns a few weeks ago.

His versatility will not doubt come in handy for Mosimane and his technical team this season. 

While he spent the better part of his career playing as a left-back, Lebusa appears likely to play as centre-back at Sundowns to provide competition for Ricardo Nascimento.

This follows the acquisition of Lyle Lakay, who revealed that Mosimane signed him to play the left-back position at the 2016 African champions.
