Bidvest Wits have confirmed that Sibusiso Vilakazi has joined Mamelodi Sundowns.

The deal has been in the pipeline for a long time, and Wits confirmed on Sunday morning that Vilakazi would be playing at the Brazilians next season, with Mogakolodi Ngele and Cuthbert Malajila moving the other way.

Wits also received an undisclosed transfer fee from Sundowns, according to their official website. The fact that Sundowns had to pay for Vilakazi and give the Clever Boys two quality players shows just how keen Pitso Mosimane must have been to have the 26 year-old Vilakazi at Choorklop this season.
