Ahead of the new season, Sundowns have begun to bolster their squad with carefully-considered recruits, while earlier this year the Brazilians were known to have secured the services of Abubeker Nassir from Ethiopian Coffee after undergoing a successful trial.

There has been a waiting game to see if Nassir would be included in Sundowns’ latest squad for the new 2022-23 season, with some reports suggesting he may be loaned out to another PSL club to gain experience in the league.

On Tuesday, though, Nassir’s transfer to Sundowns was able to be made official after the player obtained his International Transfer Certificate.

“Abubakar Nasser officially completed the transfer. Ethiopia’s national team striker Abubakar Nasser has received FIFA’s ITC confirmation today stating that he has permanently moved to South African club Mamelodi Sundowns,” a tweet from the Ethiopian Football Federation read.

REPORT: R33-MILLION TABLED FOR PERCY TAU

Earlier this year it was already confirmed that Moroccan defender Abdelmounaim Boutouil would be joining Masandawana, while it’s also more recently been announced by Uruguayan side Montevideo City Torque that Chilean midfield sensation Marcelo Allende is set to move to the DStv Premiership champions.

However, in a notable report by SABC Sport, the arrival of Boutouil and Allende have been hindered by visa and work permit application issues.

The article states that Sundowns are working hard to have both players registered before the CAF Champions League cut-off date in mid-August, with the club also having to make careful planning around their contingent of ‘foreign’ players.

Sundowns have also opened another foreign spot as Zimbabwe international defender Divine Lunga has headed Golden Arrows for the 2022/23 season on a loan deal.

The Premier Soccer League only allows for clubs to register five non-South African players at a time, unless they have been approved for a permanent residency permit (PRP), which importantly is now the case with Namibian superstar Peter Shalulile.

Earlier this year it was already confirmed that Boutouil would be joining Masandawana, and with the addition of Boutouil and Nassir, Sundowns were set to have more foreign internationals on their books than the allowed amount of five, and did need to decide which handful should registered with the PSL.
