Cape Town - Maritzburg United have acquired the services of Thabiso Kutumela from Orlando Pirates.

Kutumela has spent the past two seasons with the Buccaneers where he struggled to secure a starting spot.

The forward should be presented with more opportunities at the Harry Gwala Stadium, after United CEO Younus Kadiodia confirmed a deal had been finalised to secure his services.

"Yes (we have signed Kutumela), but we will release a statement during the course of the day," Kadodia told Goal.
