Cape Town - Chippa United boss Siviwe 'Chippa' Mpengesi has confirmed that George Akpabio will be back with the club next season.
The Nigerian striker left South Africa ahead of the 2015/16 Premiership campaign to join Turkish side Malatya Belediyespor.
Akpabio spent two years with the Chilli Boys following his arrival from Ajax Cape in 2013 and helped the club win promotion to the top flight.
Chippa coach Dan Malesela is looking to bolster his attacking options during the off-season and has moved for the 23-year-old, who endured a disappointing 12-month spell in Turkey.
"The coach [Dan Malesela] wanted to reinforce our striking force. We have since brought back George Akpabio who was playing in Turkey last season," Mpengesi told KickOff.
"We want to start well with the top eight [MTN8]. Our intention next season is to win the league.
"We did well last season. My dream and desire is now to win the league. We have a good coach in Dan Malesela and I have great belief in him.
"The good thing this time around he that he will start with the team during pre-season training."
