Modise inks Sundowns deal

2011-01-28 13:23

Johannesburg - Teko Modise has finalised his much-hyped move to Mamelodi Sundowns and wore a smile as well as shirt number eight.

The former Orlando Pirates playmaker agreed personal terms with the Brazilians on Friday morning and signed on the dotted line to make a switch that was announced yesterday a formality.

The transfer is believed to have cost the Chloorkop outfit around R5m and while Modise will continue to command a high salary - Katlego Mphela is reportedly still the highest-paid player of the club.

The 28-year-old is looking forward to the new challenge and competition for places, which he believes will help him get back to his best at both club and international level.

    The move is just to make it officially, some of us had gotten used of not having you around anyway. As much talented as you may be, i think we can enjoy the benefit of not having you at Pirates. so much distress you caused us. i hope you see your move as a privilege
