Johannesburg - Kingston Nkhatha is no longer a Kaizer Chiefs player and has joined SuperSport United with immediate effect, Chiefs said on Twitter on Friday afternoon.
"Breaking News: Kingston Nkhatha is no longer a Glamour Boy and has joined SuperSport United with immediate effect! We wish him all the best!" Chiefs tweeted from their official account, @Kaizer_Chiefs.
Chiefs provided further confirmation on their official website.
"We wish to take this opportunity to thank Kingston for the service he has rendered during his time with us," Chiefs' director of football, Bobby Motaung, told kaizerchiefs.com.
United announced their capture of Nkhatha last week, stating that the player would join the Pretoria team at the end of his contract with Chiefs on July 1.
But the two clubs successfully managed to negotiate the player's early release, paving the way for the Zimbabwean striker to make his move to Matsatsantsa six months ahead of schedule.
Nkhatha had entered into the final six months of his contract at Chiefs, meaning he was able to speak to any club regarding a move away from Naturena.
Nkhatha spent two-and-a-half years with the Glamour Boys after signing from Black Leopards on July 1, 2012.
