Kaizer Chiefs, who have been struggling in the first two games of the season were looking to intensify their defence, have since lost out to Sundowns on the Gugulethu-born defender.
The Brazilians confirmed Ngcongca’s capture in a statement published on the club’s website.
The club statement read:
“Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed signing Bafana Bafana right back Anele Ngcongca as part of coach Pitso Mosimane’s bid to strengthen his team ahead of the multiple fronts on which his team will be fighting this season, ending speculation about the player’s destination as several Premier Soccer League clubs were after his signature.”
