- Sfiso Ngobeni's move to Mamelodi Sundowns is almost as good as done after he bagged the COSAFA Cup with the national team
- Ngobeni's performances were admirable and he was instrumental in making sure that Bafana Bafana wins the title
- He has also performed well for Bloemfontein Celtic, winning the Man of the Match award on multiple occasions
Bloemfontein Celtic defender Sfiso Ngobeni is allegedly close to joining DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns following strong performances for winners Bafana Bafana at the COSAFA Cup.
The Sundowns squad is presently in Polokwane for pre-season preparations and Ngobeni is anticipated to join the team once his Celtic deal is finalised and his medical is completed.
Ngobeni was a regular for Bafana Bafana throughout their COSAFA Cup victory and he performed admirably, according to The South African.
His performances at the competition appear to have persuaded Sundowns management that Chloorkop is the ideal venue for him to continue his growth.

A source has since spoken to KickOff, revealing specifics on how far along the deal to bring Ngobeni to Sundowns is right now, and it appears that everything will be finalised soon.
“The negotiations with all parties are now at an advanced stage. Ngobeni is expected to arrive at Chloorkop this week to complete his medicals,” the source said.
If the move goes through without a hitch, Ngobeni will become the second major member of Celtic's squad to join Sundowns following the signing of midfielder Neo Maema by the Brazilians.
