"I'm at Sundowns now," Nene told KickOff.com.

"My 30 days with Chiefs is finished, I'm a Sundowns player now. I'm with MDC [the reserve team] and it's a good contract.

"I had to go to people who really wanted me rather than to stay with people who were not saying anything.

"I want to be playing in the first team before this season ends.

"At home they are very happy as long as I have a contract. It's a decision I took together with my agent."

Nene's agent Mirko Agnelli confirmed his client has started training with the Brazilians.
