Mamelodi Sundowns have pulled another surprise in the transfer market after they acquired the services of Bradley “Surprise” Ralani from Cape Town City. The 34-year-old penned a one-year deal with the defending league champions.

The former City star player became a fan favorite in South African football, with his flair and slick touches that made City tick. At Downs, he joins a star-studded side with playmakers such as Themba Zwane, Sphelele Mkhulise, Lesedi Kapinga, Sibusiso Vilakazi, among others.

“Mamelodi Sundowns are delighted to welcome attacker Bradley “Surprise” Ralani from Cape Town City. The Kimberley-born midfielder makes his way to Tshwane to represent The Brazilians following the signing of an 18 months deal, with a 1 -year option to extend,” a statement said on the Sundowns website.

Ralani’s addition to the club could make way to for Gaston Sirino, who has been plotting his way out of Sundowns, and given the lack of game time this season, he is likely to be released or sold at a high price as he is still contracted to the club until 2024.
