DURBAN – Mamelodi Sundowns have completed the signing of Sifiso Ngobeni from Bloemfontein Celtic.

"Mamelodi Sundowns are delighted to welcome left-back Sifiso Ngobeni from Bloemfontein Celtic. The Mamelodi-born defender returns to his hometown to represent The Brazilians following the signing of a 5-year deal," Sundowns club statement read.

Ngobeni went on to make 51 appearances for Siwelele over the two seasons that he spent with the team. The 24-year-old was also a member of the Bafana Bafana squad that recently won the Cosafa Cup.

Ngobeni is the second player to join Masandawana from Celtic this off-season as he reunites with Neo Maema who also joined from the Free-State based club.

Ngobeni will be expected to fill the void created by the departure of Tebogo Langerman from Sundowns.

Meanwhile, Celtic could have trouble filling the void created by the departures of Ngobeni and Maema. Siwelele are serving a transfer ban over the failure to settle debt with former goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb.
