Cape Town - University of Pretoria have completed a swap deal that has seen Thabiso Nkoana join the club while Grant Kekana has moved to SuperSport United.

Nkoana was deemed surplus to requirements at United after spending last season at Ajax Cape Town on a loan deal.

AmaTuks, meanwhile, were looking to strengthen their attack after main striker Geoffrey Massa left for Bloemfontein Celtic.

AmaTuks coach Sammy Troughton confirmed that the club had to offer cash along with Kekana in order to complete the deal.

"Thabiso is a player that we felt we needed more because we needed more of an attacker than a defender," he told KickOff.

"He started training with us today and the plus is that he is still fairly young and can play either upfront or wide on the right.

" was a swap that also involved money and it was complicated in the end. However, it is done now."
