ASEC Mimosas have confirmed the transfer of Ivorian forward Yannick Zakri to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Abidjan club confirmed the transfer on their official Twitter feed on Thursday.

According to Egyptian website KingFut, Sundowns had a R4.7 million bid for the 25 year-old accepted by ASEC this week.

Zakri was said to be wanted by several clubs including Egypt giants Zamalek, who reportedly made a formal approach for a fee worth $200 000 (around R2.8 million), but their bid fell short of the one tabled by Sundowns.
