Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have agreed to sign Zimbabwean left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai to strengthen the defence of the Siwelele side coached by Veselin Jelusic.

The defender, who previously had a trial at Kaizer Chiefs without making the grade, was assessed by Celtic during the club's pre-season training period.

It appears the player caught the eye of the club's technical team, and it seems he will now in future be making Bloemfontein his home.

Pfumbidzai's representative, Michael Ngobeni from M Sport Management, confirmed that the 22-year-old will turn out in the green and white colours of Celtic in 2017/18.

"The boy is a Celtic player. Everything has been agreed upon. He is due to land in the country anytime from now," Ngobeni told Soccer Laduma website.

Following his trial with the Glamour Boys in 2015, the left-back was signed by Denmark's Hobro IK after he was not offered a contract at Naturena.

He later enjoyed a stint with Zimbabwe's Caps United, before the Siwelele deal came to fruition.
