Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic defender Davies Nkausu will spend the next six months at Pretoria University, after a loan agreement was agreed upon by the two parties this week.

Nkausu did not feature prominently for Celtic during the first half of this season, as he only played in three Premiership matches.

While injuries did hamper him significantly during that period, the move to Pretoria might provide an opportunity to re-ignite his career and produce a meaningful second half to the season.

Another player who departed during this window period is the much travelled Ruben Cloete, who has joined Chippa United on an 18-month contract.

Lerato Manzini rejoined Celtic during the month of January with a return ‘home’ after an loan stint at Supersport United.

Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco said: "Yes! During this window period we let go of two players and welcomed Manzini back. 

"Genuinely speaking, we felt we need to have continuation hence our reluctance to hugely tamper with the current squad.

“The coach and his technical team still need sufficient time to work with all the players and make recommendations thereof at the end of the season.

"We would love to thank the players that have left and wish them all the best and it is our promise as an institution to continue identifying areas lacking depth hence the return of a lethal striker like Manzini."

Summary of Bloemfontein Celtic's latest transfer deals:


Lerato Manzini (rejoined after loan - SuperSport United)


Davies Nkausu (Pretoria University - loan)

Ruben Cloete (Chippa United - long-term loan)
