Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United number nine Kingston Nkhatha has penned a 18-month deal with Mbombela United in the National First Division.

Nkhatha scored 16 Premiership goals for Chiefs from 2012 until 2015 under the guidance of ex-Amakhosi mentor Stuart Baxter.

He was a pivotal part of Baxter's game-plan which brought two PSL titles, a Nedbank Cup and an MTN8 crown to Naturena.

Used as a big number nine to create space for Bernard Parker in the number 10 position or 'Parker role', Nkhatha's tireless leading of the line also aided the likes of George Lebese and Mandla Masango on the wings.

Nonetheless, at 33 and with his career seemingly winding down - he will now play his football for United in South Africa's second tier.

He last played in SA for SuperSport United in 2017/18 before moving to Dynamos in Zimbabwe.

Mbombela's official Twitter account said: "Mbombela United has added Kingston Nkhatha to their Squad on an 18 months deal following his departure from Dynamos FC at the end of the season (in Zimbabwe).

"Join us in wishing Kingston a successful stay in the Tingwenyama camp."
