Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have completed the signings of Helder Pelembe and Mthokozisi Dube from Orlando Pirates ahead of the start of the 2015/16 season.

A source at the Bloemfontein based side told Sport24 that the deal for the two players has been completed and they are on their way to Clinton Larsen’s side.

According to the source, Pelembe comes on a season’s loan spell while Dube has signed a long term contract with Celtic.

“We have signed Pelembe and Dube from Pirates, on a loan and permanent contract respectively,” the source said.

“The two are now on our books and will be joining our preseason soon.”

Bloemfontein Celtic have yet to officially confirm the transfers but are expected to do so shortly.

The Bloemfontein-based side has been very busy in the market having already signed the duo of Vuyisile Wana and Lantshene Phalane from Moroka Swallows, Thabang Matuka from Maritzburg United while Geoffrey Massa has joined from University of Pretoria.
