Former Orlando Pirates striker Thabiso Kutumela has reportedly joined Mamelodi Sundowns from Maritzburg United. Kutumela has signed a three-year contract with the Brazilians, according to FarPost, which means he will be in Chloorkop until June 2024.

Kutumela had been linked with Sundowns for weeks, following what was perhaps his greatest PSL season to date. Last season, the petite attacker, who had his ups and downs with Pirates before being rescued by Maritzburg United, scored 12 league goals for the KwaZulu-Natal side.

Sundowns and Maritzburg United have yet to finalize the transfer, but the Tshwane giants are anticipated to announce Kutumela as their player soon according to The South African.

Kutumela was also on AmaZulu's wanted list, but it now appears that he will join Sundowns in Gauteng next season.
