Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise has called on the club's senior players to help the new arrivals settle ahead of the new campaign.

The Brazilians have already begun strengthening their options and will see new signing Keagan Dolly arrive from Ajax Cape Town next month while Mogakolodi Ngele will return from loan at Platinum Stars.

The pair are just two of numerous new faces expected to head to Chloorkop, while captain and experienced defender Alje Schut will depart in the off-season, and Modise believes it is up to Sundowns' veteran members to make the new signings feel at home.

“I think first of all we need to find a proper balance because Alje Schut won't be there,” said Modise.

“Alje was very important to the team, scoring goals and defending well so that's one aspect we really, really need to work on.

“We need to bring fresh legs in other departments. It will be good to see young players come through and we will try to do our best as senior players to help them adjust.

“No matter how talented you are, it is different in a new environment so we need to help them.”
