Cape Town - Chippa United have confirmed the signing of former Bafana Bafana midfielder Lerato Chabangu on a free transfer after agreeing terms with the player.
Chabangu had been a free-agent since leaving relegated Moroka Swallows at the end of last season.
Following his exit, Chabangu has been training with Bidvest Wits in the off-season and for the beginning of the current campaign in hopes of securing a contract with AmaTuks, but the club opted against offering him a deal.
In stepped the Chilli Boys, who were looking to bolster their midfield options after an indifferent start to the season that sees them 11th in the standings with just four points from the opening four fixtures.
"Yes, we have agreed on terms with the player and Chabangu has signed a two-year deal with the club," Chippa COO Lukhanyo Mzinzi confirmed to KickOff.
