Mamelodi Sundowns have announced the signing of midfield king-pin Asavela Mbekile from Moroka Swallows on a four-year deal effective from July this year. 

Speaking to the Sundowns website after finalising his move to the Tshwane giants, Mbekile said that he aims to become a better player by joining Pitso Mosimane's side.

“In order for me to be the best I have to hold my own against the best and I believe that’s what I’m doing by joining Sundowns. I will become a better player here at Sundowns,” said Mbekile.

The former Chippa United midfielder also revealed that the prospect of participating in the Caf Champions League next year motivated his move to Sundowns.

“Sundowns is a giant in South African football, but that’s not all. There’s the Caf Champions League, which is another exciting thing about joining Sundowns for me.

"I always want to represent South Africa against other leagues or federations, of which the Champions League presents that platform," he concluded.
