Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the signing and arrival of Black Leopards striker Lesedi Kapinga.

The 25-year-old was released by Leopards this week ahead of his reported move.

And while the talented frontman has already linked up with the Brazilians, he will only be registered to play for next season.

A statement on the official Sundowns website read: "Lesedi Kapinga has joined the rest of the Mamelodi Sundowns team in camp (based in Rustenburg) after parting ways with Black Leopards earlier this week.

"The new signee has been welcomed by everyone in camp, digitally, as he is currently in isolation as part of the Covid-19 protocols and will interact with the rest of the squad in person once his isolation period is completed."

Brazilians' head coach Pitso Mosimane added: "Lesedi is a good young prospect and we are looking at getting as many young players as we can.

"He fits the programme with his age and the style of play. He is the type of player who likes combination play and loves one on one and taking defenders on.

"He scores goals also and I wish him all the best."

The Brazilians have already secured the services of star midfielder George Maluleka from Kaizer Chiefs.
