Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have reportedly completed the signing of Burundi striker Fiston Abdul Razak from Kenyan Premier League giants Sofapaka.

Head coach, Pitso Mosimane and his scouting crew are believed to have been monitoring the forward over the past few months and have seemingly seen enough to be convinced, snapping him up on a three-year deal.

The contract that Razak inked is worth a reported R3m.

The 23-year-old, not to be mistaken for Ivory Coast international Abdul Razak, only joined Batoto ba Mungu in 2014.

That year they won the Kenyan President's Cup, having previously come up through the ranks with local Burundian side LLB Academic FC.

Razak's deal with Sundowns will reportedly also see Sofapaka earn up to 20% of any potential future sale of the striker.
