Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have signed Free State Stars
right-back Nyiko Mobbie as Ea Lla Koto continue to cut down their squad to
prepare for life in the National First Division.
Stars released virtually every squad member at the end of
2018/19 campaign following relegation.
Stars boss Rantsi Mokoena confirmed the deal to Soccer
Laduma: "We have been talking to a few clubs about some of our players and
Sundowns showed a keen interest in Mobbie.
"And yes we have concluded a deal for the player and he
will be joining them for next season. He has been a great servant for our club
over the years and had become an important player for us.
"But unfortunately, we couldn't keep everyone. We have
gone through a restructuring process to prepare for life in the NFD and it was
in Mobbie's best interest to continue to grow his career elsewhere."
Other players that have been sold are Harris Tchilimbou to
Bloemfontein Celtic and Sibusiso Hlubi to Polokwane City.
