The 30-year-old had been on the radar of the Brazilians for quite some time and the club has finally managed to convince him to go to Chloorkop
Former Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus has joined the Mamelodi Sundowns from Cape Town City.
This after City announced that they had reached an agreement with Sundowns over the sale of the speedy striker.
Surprisingly, City confirmed the news on their social media platforms but later deleted it, and thus, raising a few eyebrows on whether or not the deal is 100 per cent done.
“Cape Town City and Mamelodi Sundowns have reached an agreement over the transfer of Kermit Erasmus,” read the club’s tweet before it was deleted.
“A hero in the City shirt, we wish him the best of luck in the next phase of his career!”
Erasmus had been linked with a possible move to the Brazilians for months now but at times, City appeared reluctant to sell their last season’s top goalscorer.
He scored 14 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions for the Citizens in last season.
The 30-year-old is Sundowns’ eighth signing ahead of the 2020-21 campaign and Sundowns will be pretty satisfied that they have finally landed their long-term target.
The former SuperSport United marksman joins George Maluleka, Lesedi Kapinga, Peter Shalulile, Ricardo Goss, Haashim Domingo, Mothobi Mvala and Aubrey Modiba among other players who recently sealed their moves to the Tshwane giants.
He’s expected to be unveiled by the Brazilians any time from now, especially because he is reported to have already said his goodbyes to Cape Town City teammates on Friday.
