“Every window there is work to be done, I think we are very close to concluding one incoming transfer. We are very close, but I am still very tight-lipped on that as the club will release a statement. But we are very close to signing a player that is going to be very important for us this season. We felt we needed a bit cover with regards to a specific position.” Mokwena said after Sundowns’ victory over Baroka FC.
