Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs' off season arrival, Bhongolethu Jayiya, says it was a dream come true to finally don the famous Black and Gold colours of Amakhosi.

The former Cape Town City forward joined Chiefs this month on a free transfer, after his contract expired with the Citizens - where he enjoyed a fruitful spell last season to put him on the radar of the Premiership's biggest sides.

However, the 27-year-old admits there was only one team in his mind once Amakhosi expressed interest in his services and after making his debut during the 2017 Maize Cup pre-season tournament - he revealed he was born within a Chiefs supporting environment.

"It was great to get game time," he told the club's official website.

"I grew up in a Kaizer Chiefs supporting family.

"My father, my mother, my grandfather, my sister… Everybody supports the Glamour Boys.

"That's why it's so great that I have now joined the club of my dreams.

"I won't let the supporters down. I know how they feel, because I myself have always been one. I want to help Kaizer Chiefs win trophies."
