Maritzburg United chairman Farook Kadodia has confirmed that defender Rushine De Rueck is set to join Mamelodi Sundowns.
The young defender rose to prominence with a breakout 2019-20 season after which he won the Premiership Defender of the Season award.
He has continued his fine form this season, being one of the key figures of the Team of Choice, and looked to have eventually earned his big move.
While Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have been known admirers of the defender, it appears that the Brazilians have stolen a march on their rivals with the capture of the young central defender.
According to reports, De Reuck is set to start training with Masandawana on Monday after leaving Maritzburg United on Thursday, with Kadodia confirming the move to KickOff.com.
‘Yes, it’s true. He [De Reuck] has left,’ Kadiodia told the website.
Online photos of the 25-year-old centre back already signing his contract with the Brazilians have done the rounds, but Downs are yet to announced the signing.

While Sundowns have been tracking the defender’s progress, it is believed that the tragic death of Moketja Madisha led to them dipping into the transfer market.
