Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have announced that George Lebese has been released for an undisclosed fee to join Mamelodi Sundowns.

“The deal was concluded this afternoon (Thursday, August 10),” Bobby Motaung confirmed on the club's official website.

“We’ve seen Lebese grow with us and we released him at his request.

“We are happy that the negotiations went well and an agreement has been reached with Sundowns.”

The Mamelodi born Lebese has been a Glamour Boy since 2008.

“Kaizer Chiefs do not stand in the way when the players express their desire to leave,” said Motaung continued.

“It’s our policy. We thank Lebese for his contribution to the success of the team and wish him all of the best in his future endeavours.”
