Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane says he is still looking to make three new additions to his playing squad despite already having made four signings.

Speaking to journalists in a post-match press conference after a 2-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup Mosimane outlined his intentions in the current transfer window.

"We will probably release three players and get in three more," Mosimane said. "So we're still short of three and we're currently in the market [for players].

Mosimane when asked to specify which areas he was looking to strengthen gave details of what he was looking to add to his squad.

"A centre-back then an attacker probably a 10 or a 9 and also a third left-back, I think that's what we need.

"A left centre-back and not a right footed centre-back we need to get the balance because I don't like playing two right-footed centre-backs, it's just not working for us," Mosimane concluded.

The players thought to be admired by Mosimane are Ajax Cape Town skipper Musa Lebusa who can play as a centre-back or left-back and Lebo Manyama who is set to become a free agent.

Sundowns in this transfer window alone have made four new additions ahead of the 2018/2019 Absa Premiership season and currently boast a playing squad of 36 players.
