Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have announced new long-term deals for first-team regular Ricardo Nascimento and youth product Sphelele Mkhulise.
Nascimento has become a key player for Pitso Mosimane's side since his arrival from Academica of Portugal in 2016.
The Brazilian defender started all three Premiership encounters of the new campaign, but is currently serving a suspension for the red card he received against Highlands Park last time out.
The 31-year-old, who already has two league goals to his name this season, has agreed a contract extension at Chloorkop through to 2021.
Mkhulise, meanwhile, has signed on for the next five years after impressing Mosimane during pre-season.
The 22-year-old midfielder spent last term on loan with Richards Bay in the National First Division, but made his Sundowns debut against Cape Town City in the MTN8 semi-finals last month.
