Mamelodi Sundowns are set to finally land their man Thapelo Morena after agreeing with Bloemfontein Celtic on the transfer fee for the prized midfielder.
Morena has not hidden his desire to leave Celtic for greener pastures in Gauteng this season, with Chloorkop being his favourite destination amid talk of a possible switch to Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates.
Yet according to an official at Sundowns, Morena is expected to put pen to paper with the Brazilians on Tuesday.
"We are just left with few issues with personal terms," the source reveals. "Morena should sign with us tomorrow.”
Siwelele CEO Khumbulani Konco refused to comment about the imminent departure of Morena to the Brazilians, but did confirm that there had been communication with the Pretoria club.
"I can't say anything. Please speak to Sundowns,” he said.
The 22-year-old started 30 games for Celtic last season, scoring four goals, and was part of the national Under-23 side that took part in the Olympic Games in Brazil.
