Cape Town - Young and talented Kaizer Chiefs defender Lorenzo Gordinho has put pen to paper on a three-year contract that should see him stay at Naturena until 2020.

The centre-back has come to prominence under coach Steve Komphela and has formed a good partnership with Eric Mathoho at the heart of the Glamour Boys' defence.

He recently spent time on trial with Danish club Aalborg, however, no deal was forthcoming for the player. As such, he has renewed his deal with Amakhosi and will be at Naturena in the years to come.

His agent, Mike Makaab, told Soccer Laduma, "Yes, it has all been finalised now and Lorenzo has put pen to paper. It's a straight three-year contract."

The Benoni-born star has made 18 appearances in all competitions in 2016/17 and will no doubt have a major role to play as Chiefs chase another league title.

Komphela's men are one point off league-leaders SuperSport and play their first match against Free State Stars on Tuesday, February 7.
