Mamelodi Sundowns confirmed that they have completed the signing of Lesedi Kapinga.
Black Leopards confirmed this week that they’ve parted ways with the 25-year-old, bidding him farewell as he looks to take the next step of his professional career.
It was widely reported back in March this year that Kapinga put pen to paper on a pre-contract with the Brazilians and following his departure from Leopards, an announcement by Sundowns would be imminent.
The Chloorkop-based club has since confirmed that they have secured his signature on a five-year deal.
“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,” Sundowns said on their official website.
“Lesedi can only be registered for the upcoming season when the transfer window opens and will not feature in any matches when the current season restarts,” the Brazilians added.
