Cape Town - South Africa international defender Lorenzo Gordinho says he is happy with his loan switch to Bloemfontein Celtic from Kaizer Chiefs.

Despite being used as a make-weight in the deal to take playmaker Kabelo Mahlasela to Naturena, Gordinho who featured 45 times for Amakhosi over the past two seasons feels he still has a future with the Soweto giants.

With the 12-month loan confirmed, the academy graduate says he plans to use the move to rejuvenated Siwelele to get back to the form that earned break into the national team - working with the highly-rated coach Veselin Jelusic.

"I think I still have a career at Chiefs because I am a Chiefs player," he told the Star.

"Celtic have given me a chance to come and help them and I am happy to be here.

"I was faced with a different situation at Chiefs, where things changed after I got injured. But I am ready and fit again.

"I think Celtic have the potential to finish in the top four and I am here to help them achieve that," the 23-year-old added.

"This is a chance for me to get back to my form."
