Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena has confirmed several players are set to depart the club ahead of the transfer deadline.

Sundowns unveiled their latest signing Terrence Mashego on Saturday before making his debut in a 1-0 win over AmaZulu in a DStv Premiership clash at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Sunday.

Mashego joined Marcelo Allende, Abubeker Nassir, Sipho Mbule and Ronwen Williams as the club's recruits for this season as the Brazilians reinforced their squad.

Mokwena revealed after Sunday's victory that the club will soon also announce the arrival of Moroccan defender Abdelmounaim Boutouil.

"In our foreign [player quota] space, we are okay," Mokwena said.

"We have already spoken about that space and we had to make some difficult decisions for sure by allowing a player like [Pavol] Safranko to leave.

"It was not an easy decision because of the quality he possesses and the person he is but we had to free up the space."

"The club will make an announcement in due course with regards to AB [Abdelmounaim Boutouil] so we just need to be a bit more patient in that space.

"We will not just do business but I think you will see more outgoings than incomings.

"At this moment we have far too many players to continue bringing in more."

Kermit Erasmus and Gift Motupa are some of the names linked with an exit before the transfer window shut closed on Thursday, August 22.
