Cape Town - The future of Zimbabwe winger Kudakwashe Mahachi has been clarified after Mamelodi Sundowns brought the player back from Golden Arrows.

Mahachi was initially released as a free agent during the middle of last season in order to sign for Golden Arrows, but his form in the latter stages of the campaign for club and country gave the Brazilians reason to reconsider their stance on the player.

Sundowns general manager Sizwe Nzimande admits the club made a mistake by letting the 22-year-old go, but quickly rectified it after negotiations with Abafana Bes'thende, citing the progression of Keagan Dolly as another example.

"Kuda has been bought back by Sundowns. He was declared a free agent and went to Golden Arrows. We sat with Arrows and were able to bring him back on our books," Nzimande told the Sowetan Live.

"A great way of learning for Sundowns was through Keagan Dolly. He was from our academy and we let him go to join Ajax Cape Town."

Since arriving in the Premiership in 2104 from Zimbabwean side Highlanders, Mahachi has scored four goals and registered nine assists in 34 league outings.
