Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has hinted that the Brazilians may sign Brazilian trialist Nathan Junior, though he has returned to his home country.

Junior recently spent a trial period with the 2016 African champions and is said to have impressed Mosimane and his technical team at Chloorkop.

The forward was originally spotted when Downs' mentor recruited centre-back Ricardo Nascimento, while he previously was on a loan spell at Portuguese outfit Coimbra.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "Nathan Junior, we are still making a decision on him.

"He has gone back to Brazil. He will be back very soon. There's a possibility (that Sundowns will sign him)."

The club already have a strong South American presence in the squad with Jose Ali Meza, Gaston Sirino and Nascimento in the ranks.

Should Junior eventually be signed, it is unclear who will be let go as the team already have a full quota of five foreigners.
