Mamelodi Sundowns have signed defender Thabo Nthethe (far right on the picture above) from Bloemfontein Celtic on the last day of the transfer window on Friday just few hours before the deadline.
The highly rated centre-back arrives from Bloemfontein Celtic, whom he skippered for seasons and he has signed a four-year deal with the Brazilians. Thabo Nthethe has been represented South Africa national team 19 times since making his international debut in 2009.
The 29-year old says he joined the big-spenders because he wants to take his career to the next level. “I am joining Sundowns because I want to take my career to the next level and I want to achieve more success,” he said.
“Joining a big team like Sundowns is dream come true for me, as it is one I always wished could happen for a while now. This club is going places and I believe I will add to bringing back the glory days.
Thabo Nthethe, who was suppose to join the Pretoria-based side in June 2013, will join his teammates as soon as possible and might feature when his side welcome struggling Lamontville Golden Arrows on Wednesday the 5th of February at Loftus Stadium.
