Mosimane is still looking for replacements for Percy Tau and Khama Billiat following their departure in the off-season.

The Brazilians mentor revealed that he spotted Junior in 2016 while on a scouting mission in Portugal.

The defending Premiership champions, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Wits on Sunday, already have three South Americans in their squad in Ricardo Nascimento, Gaston Sirino and Jose Ali Meza.
