Cape Town - Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns have beaten Kaizer Chiefs to the signing of versatile defender Mosa Lebusa from Ajax Cape Town.

Urban Warriors coach Muhsin Ertugral confirmed to IOL that the defender had departed the relegated Cape-based club to Masandawana.

"Lebusa has done well for us. He is leaving the club. He is joining Sundowns and I think he will do well there," Ertugral said.

The 25-year-old joins new signing and fellow left-sided player Lyle Lakay as well as up to 11 current defenders on the Sundowns squad list.

Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Patrick Mabedi confirmed previously that the Soweto Giants were interested in the left-back after releasing defenders Tsepo Masilela and Sibusiso Khumalo.

Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane previously stated that he was in the market for three players in the current transfer window.

"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 said.

Sundowns in this transfer window alone have now made six new additions ahead of the 2018/2019 Absa Premiership season and currently boast a playing squad of 38.
