The former Mamelodi Sundowns winger has ambitions of
extending his career by playing one or two more seasons.
Dladla is a free agent after his contract with Amakhosi came
to an end.
The 35-year-old's exit at Naturena was on amicable terms and it was
time for him to move on.
"I am in great shape, I have been training and feeling
better than I have ever felt in a long time and I am looking forward to playing
football and passing on some of the experience I have to the youngsters,"
Dladla said in a statement.
"My legs can still go and I feel like I want to keep on
going. I have spent nearly seven years at Kaizer Chiefs and I feel like it’s
time for a new challenge.
"It was an honour to play for such a great team and I
cherish the memories that I have.
“I thank the chairman, the club and the fans for the
unbelievable support that they have given me over the years and now it’s time
to move on."
