Following Soccer-Laduma's revelation that Mamelodi Sundowns had signed Zambian starlet Mukuka Mulenga, the Chloorkop outfit has now confirmed the deal.
The player, who plied his trade for Power Dynamos in Zambia, was a standout performer in the recent COSAFA Cup, where Chipolopolo secured the trophy on their home soil.
Power and Sundowns had long agreed on a deal to see the player move to the Premier Soccer League, and the player has now signed on the dotted line to confirm the move.
A statement on Sundowns' official website read, "It’s official. Mamelodi Sundowns have bagged Zambian rising star Mukuka Mulenga on a three year deal from Power Dynamos.
"At only 20 years old, the Zambian ace has has already shown what he is made of, not only as part of the Zambian National team that lifted the Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON) in 2012, but also in the local league.
"Mulenga was named the Zambian Footballer Of The Year in the past season for his sterling performances for both country and team. He followed that swoop of personal accolades with a fine performance in the 2013 COSAFA Cup, where he was eventually voted the Player of the Tournament after he helped Chipolopolo lift the cup on home soil.
"Both Sundowns and Power Dyanamos had long agreed on the transfer for the tricky midfielder but a deal with the player was only reached today. Sundowns technical team will be very pleased with the acqisition of the player as there had been much competition for his signature, both in South Africa and overseas."
