Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed that Colombian striker Leonardo Castro will be leaving the club.

While the imminent departure of star winger Khama Billiat has been well publicised, the exit of Castro can now also be expected.

During the Fifa international week, Mosimane travelled to a handful of countries in South America to scout for a new striker to lead his attack.

"I have got people there [in South America]. Hopefully we close a deal. Khama is leaving [and] Leo is leaving. The CBD is gone. So we need to change the team," Mosimane said, in reference to the once-feared threesome of Castro, Billiat and Keagan Dolly.

"The supporters want the win, they don't want excuses about rebuilding the team."
