University of Pretoria have completed a loan move for young Mamelodi Sundowns striker Tebogo Reed.
Reed is the son of Bloemfontein Celtic legend, and all-time record goalscorer, Benjamin Reed.
He has signed a one-year loan deal with AmaTuks as they look to chase promotion in the 2017/18 National First Division season.
Reed's manager Machine Motloung has confirmed his client's move to the University of Pretoria: "There were a few other options but we decided to settle for AmaTuks. It's a one-year loan deal from Sundowns."
This is not the first instance the lanky 22-year-old has had a loan spell in the second tier as he had spent time with Black Leopards last season.
However, the move proved unsuccessful for the player that made a name for himself during the first edition of the MDC - scoring a brace against Mpumalanga Black Aces on debut.
Reed returned from his fruitless stint at Lidoda Duvha to tour the Netherlands with Masandawana's reserve side and scored a superb winner against Japan's Ichifuna in the final of the MultiChoice International Challenge.
Meanwhile, AmaTuks are also said to be looking at Brazilian defender Wisley Felipe Prado Santos, who is currently on trial with the Tshwane-based side.
