Phakaaathi has learnt that Mamelodi Sundowns are expected to complete the transfer of Bloemfontein Celtic winger Thapelo Morena today.

Head coach Pitso Mosimane made it clear at recent media conferences that the club was looking to sign one more player before the start of the new season.

Sundowns have added three new players to their team in the transfer window. Midfielders Sibusiso Vilakazi, Lucky Mohomi and defender Ricardo Nascimento.

Earlier Celtic released a statement claiming to have extended Morena’s contract a few weeks ago, but Morena later refuted those claims which led to the club’s officials stating they had only increased his salary.

The Mangaung-based club announced the signing of Sydney Masana from Mthatha Bucks and promoted four players from their development structures on Monday and many have read that as a sign that the club could be preparing for life without Morena.
