Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the signing of striker Peter Shalulile and midfielder Mothobi Mvala on five-year contracts from Highlands Park.

The two are the latest arrivals at Chloorkop where they join George Maluleka (Kaizer Chiefs), Lesedi Kapinga (Black Leopards), Grant Magerman (Ajax Cape Town) and Ricardo Goss (Bidvest Wits).

Highlands cashed in with the sale of the duo before the Premiership status of the Tembisa-based club was sold to Tim Sukazi’s TS Galaxy.

“I have joined Sundowns because it’s one of the best clubs in Africa and I want to win trophies. It’s a platform for me to play in the CAF Champions League,” Shalulile said.

The Namibian striker finished the season as joint top goal-scorer with Gabadinho Mhango of Orlando Pirates with 16 goals each.

Mvala, the Bafana Bafana international, will bring steel to the Sundowns midfield.

“Every season Sundowns compete for trophies, which is something you want as a player – to win something for yourself, for your family, for the supporters, for everyone.

“I’m looking forward to meeting all the players so that we can share good moments and keep winning,” said the 26-year-old.

It seems Sundowns are not done yet. The Brazilians have also been linked with Gift Motupa, Haashim Domingo, both of Wits, as well as the Cape Town City duo of Kermit Erasmus and Edmilson Dove.
