Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Mamelodi Sundowns have announced the signing of Lesedi Kapinga on a five year deal.

The attacking midfielder recently ended his stay with Black Leopards after his deal with the club expired last month.

Kapinga has been exceptional in the 2019/2020 season which saw the big clubs in the PSL express interest in acquiring the services of the midfielder..

“Lesedi Kapinga has joined the rest of the Mamelodi Sundowns team in camp (based in Rustenburg) after parting ways with Black Leopards earlier this week.”

“The new signee has been welcomed by everyone in camp, digitally, as he is currently in isolation as part of the Covid-19 protocols and will interact with the rest of the squad in person once his isolation period is completed,” a club statement read on Thursday.


Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane also added his view on the player’s capture.


“Lesedi is a good young prospect and we are looking at getting as many young players as we can,” Mosimane told the club’s official website.


“He fits the programme with his age and the style of play. He is the type of player who likes combination play and loves one on one and taking defenders on. He scores goals also and I wish him all the best.”

Another club statement read: “Lesedi can only be registered for the upcoming season when the transfer window opens and will not feature in any matches when the current season restarts.”

The 25- year old was able to contribute five goals and five assists for Leopards in the current campaign.
