Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Donald Mokondelela has been offered a Premiership lifeline by Polokwane City after they confirmed his signing on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old made the move to Mayfair in 2016 after helping Baroka FC win promotion to the top flight as National First Division champions.

But after making just two league appearances for the Buccaneers last term, Mokondelela was sent out on loan to Chippa United, where he also struggled for game time.

New Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic deemed him surplus to requirements for the new season, and the player was released from his contract last month.

Rise and Shine subsequently took Mokondelela on trial and were impressed enough with what they saw to handed him a three-year deal.

"It's a done deal. Donald is now our player," Polokwane spokesman Vusi Mtimane was quoted as saying by Mzansi Daily News.

"We also signed two boys, Sithembiso Hlophe and Mhlanga, from African All Stars."

The trio were amongst the nine new arrivals unveiled by the Limpopo outfit on Wednesday.
