Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have completed the signing of former Platinum Stars striker Siphelele Mthembu on a three year deal.

Chiefs corporate and communications manager Vina Maphosa confirmed to Sport24 in an exclusive interview on Thursday, that the KwaZulu-Natal-born forward has re-joined the Phefeni Glamour Boys after a successful 2013/14 season with Dikwena where he managed to score five league goals.

“Yes we have signed Siphelele Mthembu,” Maphosa confirmed.

“He has signed a three year contract with the club.

“Mthembu will be with us starting from the next season."

Chiefs are looking to reinforce their squad ahead of the new PSL season which is set to commence next month.

Notably, the 26-year-old target man won the MTN8 and the Telkom Knockout Cup with Stars last season.

Mthembu was the joint top goal scorer in the MTN8 alongside then team-mate Robert Ng'ambi of Stars and Lennox Bacela of Orlando Pirates, each scoring three goals.

The last time Mthembu played for Chiefs was back in the 2008/09 pre-season and his spell with the Soweto giants ended in a controversial fashion.

Mthembu signed two contracts with both Chiefs and Pirates but the Buccaneers ended up having the rights to use the goal-poacher’s services as the dates on the contracts stated that he signed with the Happy People before the Phefeni Glamour Boys.

“Shaka Zulu” might feature in his first competitive game in the Amakhosi colours against Mpumalanga Black Aces in the MTN8 quarter-finals during the first week of August.
