Johannesburg - Supersport United, have confirmed that the transfer of Bongani Khumalo to Tottenham Hotspur was concluded this on Friday afternoon.

Supersport United Chief Operations Officer, Jose Ferreira, said: “Bongani’s international transfer was finalized this afternoon and Bongani should be eligible to start playing for Spurs immediately”.

“I have no doubt that Bongani will be a success at Spurs. He has all the attributes required of a player to excel in the demanding environment of English football.”

“In recent years- be it because most South African clubs have demanded highly inflated transfer fees for the transfers of their players, or because top European clubs have looked at other markets- we have not seen too many South African players moving from South African clubs to top European teams. We are therefore extremely proud to see a Supersport United player and one of South Africa’s most prized footballers making the transition to a Uefa Champions League club such as Tottenham Hotspur.

“We wish Bongani the very best with his career at Spurs,” concluded Ferreira.

Khumalo spoke with excitement after sealing his move to the Club and is determined to play his part in what he hopes will be a bright future.

The South Africa international defender admits he loved every minute of his trial at the Lane earlier this season and is relishing further opportunities of playing and training alongside a squad he believes is full of quality.

And coming off the back of winning three consecutive league titles with previous club SuperSport United back home, the 23-year-old is hungry for more success in this new chapter in his young career.

Bongani said: “I’m looking to learn as fast as I can and do all I can to contribute to this wonderful team.

“All the players are very professional and very good, genuine guys and quality players. I’ve been very fortunate to just be a part of that and take in the experience so far.

“They’ve done so well this season and there are quality players all around. I just want to be part of the success.

“I want to win games here, I want to win titles – that’s what the game’s about. I’ve been fortunate to experience some success in my career back home lifting trophies and I would like to do the same here. The feeling is addictive.

“It’s a higher level, it’s not easy but I’m going to give it my best and contribute as best as I can to the team’s success.”
