The pair both put pen in four-year deals with the Free State giants, who will continue their bid for a top-eight finish when they resume their Premiership campaign against runaway leaders Kaizer Chiefs next week.

Speaking to Phunya Sele Sele's official website, 23-year-old Alushavhiwi said: "My vision has expanded to new horizons. I'm eternally blessed for the opportunity given.

"I recall how I travelled to Bloemfontein from Venda few years back in search of a brighter future and now can see the light.

“I will not only commit but make sure I play my heart out for this beautiful brand."

Rikhotso, 22, added: "Most players are dying for such great opportunity, I'm shaking in disbelief knowing how huge the Celtic brand is.

“I promise that the desire to prosper will keep me focused."
