Ajax snap up Sundowns defender

Posted: 7 August 2018 Time: 08:27

Mamelodi Sundowns have let go of defender Thendo Mukumela, who has joined relegated outfit Ajax Cape Town ahead of the 2018/19 First Division season.

The Urban Warriors on Tuesday morning confirmed the arrival of Mukumela on a permanent basis as a possible replacement for Mosa Lebusa, who went the other way.

The 20-year-old centre-back was promoted to The Brazilians' first team in August last year, along with another rising start Keletso Makgalwa.


However, having failed to get game-time ahead of the likes of Ricardo Nascimento, Wayne Arendse, Motjeka Madisha and Bangaly Soumahoro, the club have agreed to let him go in search of first team opportunities elsewhere.

Mukumela is a former youth international, who has featured at two FIFA World Cups at Under-17 and U-20 level.
