Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the promotion to the first team of Siphesihle Mkhize and Musawenkosi Mdhuli.
The pair of 21-year-olds have both come through the academy at Chloorkop.
Sundowns released a statement on Tuesday: “Both players are 21-years-old and have been making their strides in the Mamelodi Sundowns Academy. They have been promoted to bolster the midfield, as Mkhize is a defensive midfielder whilst Mdhuli is an attacking option for the technical team.”
While this is Mdhluli’s first opportunity to play senior football, Mkhize already has a season’s experience, having been a key player for Ajax Cape Town in the Glad Africa Championship least season.
Mkhize featured 26 times for the Urban Warriors as they narrowly missed out on both winning the second tier, and promotion.
