Mamelodi Sundowns have continued to strengthen their squad after capturing the services of star Thembinkosi Lorch from Orlando Pirates.

After weeks of speculation linking Lorch to Sundowns, the club has finally got their man putting an end to his seven-season stay at Pirates.

Lorch becomes Sundowns’ fourth mid-season signing following the arrival of Zuko Mdunyelwa, Matias Esquivel and Tashreeq Matthews.

“Thembinkosi Lorch is to leave Orlando Pirates Football Club after a discussion between the Chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza and the Mamelodi Sundowns hierarchy,” Pirates announced in a statement.

“The Club thanks ‘Nyoso’ for his immense contribution by adding another page in the history of the Club.

“We wish him and his family well in his future sporting pursuit.”
