Cape Town - Chippa United defender James Okwuosa expressed gratitude to the club after he was taken back when a proposed move to Orlando Pirates collapsed.

The 25-year-old was left in limbo after the Buccaneers did an about-turn having signed a pre-contract in January.

The Nigerian thanked club boss Chippa Mpengesi after being handed a three-year deal by the Port Elizabeth outfit.

"I am grateful for the warm welcome I received from the coach, technical team and players.  Everybody, including management and staff has been good to me," Okwuosa told the club's official website.

"I consider the chairman as family. We are like brothers now. He is a true leader and I thank him for supporting me all the way.

"It feels good to be back here training with the boys. I always set myself goals as a footballer and believe that as a group we can create something special this season.

"Last season was great, but this season we will do even better. We must remain focused and work hard, because it will not be easy.

"The supporters were big part of what we achieved last season and we have to pay them back by making them proud on the field of play."
