Cape Town - Xola Mlambo has thanked all parties involved following the successful completion of his move from Chippa United to Bidvest Wits ahead of the new Premiership season.

The 25-year-old midfielder completed his move to the Sturrock Park-based outfit on Friday and will look to help Gavin Hunt's men clinch the league title that has alluded them in recent seasons.

"I am lost for words. I don't know where to start and what to say, I am just grateful to the club for welcoming me with open arms in January, and for everything they have done for me," Mlambo told Chippa's website.

Despite the finer details of the move having not been revealed, the Port-Elizabeth outfit's chairman Siviwe 'Chippa' Mpengesi revealed that the transfer is the biggest in the history of the club.

The player, known as ten-ten in the football fraternity, expressed his gratitude to the fans of the Chilli Boys for their support during his stay with the club.

"I want to thank the fans not only for the love and welcome they gave me on my arrival, but for the manner in which they cheered us on the pitch," he added.

"It rubbed off on us (players), and in my opinion they are up there with the best (fans) in South African football.

"The singing and their spirit lifted us and in return all we wanted to do as players was to give back to them."
