Mamelodi Sundowns are reportedly in talks with Gaston Sirino’s previous team, Bolivar, to have one of his teammates join him at Chloorkop.

According to reports in Bolivia, Sundowns are ironing out the details of midfielder Leonel Justiniano’s move to South Africa.

Club manager Vinícius Eutrópio confirmed that Justiniano is expected to play one domestic tournament with Bolivar before making his Absa Premiership switch.

“The issue of Justinian is almost fixed. We will have him inside the team this semester, then he will be ceded to a South African football club,” Eutrópio told Topgente.

The 25-year-old Justiniano, who plays as a central defensive midfielder, is seen as a long time replacement of club captain Hlompho Kekana.
