Mamelodi Sundowns have been busy again in the transfer market, confirming the arrival of yet another player to bring their total so far to six fresh faces.
As previously reported by the Siya crew several months ago, Sifiso Ngobeni has joined the Brazilians on a five-year deal.
Soccer Laduma had also been informed that the young left back will go out on loan – possibly back to Bloemfontein Celtic, where he was so instrumental last season.
Downs confirmed the news on their website on Thursday afternoon.
“Mamelodi Sundowns are delighted to welcome left-back Sifiso Ngobeni from Bloemfontein Celtic. The Mamelodi-born defender returns to his hometown to represent The Brazilians following the signing of a 5-year deal,” read the statement.
“The 24-year old made 21 league appearances for Siwelele last season. Ngobeni played an essential part in the 2021 COSAFA Cup tournament representing Bafana Bafana as they went on to win the prestigious tournament held in Gqeberha, Eastern Cape on Sunday 19, July 2021. The full-back becomes the second player from the Free State-based side that has joined the Yellow Nation this off-season and will join up with his former teammate Neo Maema at Chloorkop.
Welcome home, Ngobs!”
He joins Grant Kekana, Neo Maema, Divine Lunga, Thabiso Kutumela and Pavol Safranko to the list of new additions.
