JOHANNESBURG - Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the signing of central midfielder, Asavela Mbekile from Moroka Swallows, the club said in its website.

Mbekile joins the Brazilians on a four-year deal.

"In order for me to be the best, I have to hold my own against the best and I believe that is what I'm doing by joining Sundowns."

The midfielder, who also represented Bafana Bafana, says the CAF Champions League was one of the reasons he decided to join Sundowns as he will get an opportunity to compete continentally.

"Sundowns is a giant in South African football but that's not all. There's the CAF Champions League, which is another exciting thing about joining Sundowns for me."
