Mamelodi Sundowns-bound winger Lucas Ribeiro Costa has said his goodbyes to Belgian club, Beveren.

Costa will complete his move to the ‘Brazilians’ this week.

The 24-year-old who can feature in the ten role, on either wing and as a false nine has been on the radar of the club for some time as they looked to secure a left-footed attacker.

Costa excelled last season at the second-tier side, netting 11 goals and scoring eight assists in 33 games across all competitions.

After four years in Belgium and two years in France with Valenciennes after leaving his native Brazil, Costa arrives in South Africa for his latest challenge with the CAF Champions League and Africa Super League on the horizon beyond the domestic campaign.

He is set to join Junior Mendieta and Lesiba Nku as their newest recruits ahead of the 2023/24 season.
