Long-time Kaizer Chiefs target Sibusiso Vilakazi has reportedly decided to move from Bidvest Wits to the Brazilians.
The 26-year-old midfielder was wanted by Chiefs, but Sundowns made the big moves for him over the past year. They certainly had the financial capacity to make it happen, and Vilakazi’s career has reached a point where he needs a change.
“The player [Vilakazi] is happy about the whole development and is excited about finally realising his dream of joining Sundowns,” revealed a Daily Sun source.
“He was no longer happy at Wits and indications are that the Wits coach [Gavin Hunt] wouldn’t be happy either, having to hang on to an unhappy player.”
Sundowns are already celebrating a 2-1 win against Zamalek in the 2016 Caf Champions League group stage, so they could top off a good week with this lucrative signing.
