Castro's working relationship with Pitso Mosimane broke down at the start of the season, and he was reduced to an impact player by the Sundowns coach

Colombian striker Leonardo Castro has officially completed his move to Kaizer Chiefs.

The lanky frontman was unveiled by the club on Monday afternoon, just over 48 hours after Amakhosi reached an agreement with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Castro, 28, has been in the country for two-and-a-half seasons now, and he took the PSL by storm in his first few months with the Brazilians alongside Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly.

He will be expected to hit the ground running when the league resumes early next year, with Amakhosi desperate to win at least one of the two trophies on offer for them this season.

Details of Castro's contract with Amakhosi have not been made public, but reports suggest that he has agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal. 

Castro stopped training with Pitso Mosimane's side on Friday, as his move to Naturena appeared closer to completion. 

Goal has already reported to that Castro's move to Amakhosi was a straight sale despite initial media reports that Gustavo Paez could be heading in the opposition direction as a part of the deal
