Mamelodi Sundowns have put to bed all speculation after confirming their first big signing ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Sundowns have officially announced the acquisition of midfielder George Maluleka following his release from Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday.
Maluleka's contract at Chiefs lapsed at the end of June, with the Soweto outfit opting not to enter into a short-term extension until the completion of the 2019/20 campaign.
The 31-year-old, who signed a pre-contract with the Tshwane giants earlier this year, will now be eligible to move to Chloorkop immediately upon the PSL's return to training, but will not be registered just yet.
"Mamelodi Sundowns is delighted to announce that George Maluleka has signed a three-year deal with The Brazilians," read a statement from the club.
"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the transfer window in South Africa is closed until the 2019/20 season reaches its conclusion and Maluleka will be registered as soon as it opens.
"For the time being Maluleka will not be able to feature but will start training and getting acquainted with his new club and teammates.
"The Yellow Nation welcomes George Maluleka to the most successful team in the PSL era."
