Cape Town - Golden Arrows have announced the signing of Free State Stars winger Danny Venter as their first signing of the January transfer window.

The acquisition of the experienced left-footed player has sparked rumours that he may be a direct replacement for in-demand playmaker Kudakwashe Mahachi.

Mahachi has attracted the interest of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates in recent weeks but with the arrival of Venter, Clinton Larsen has secured a more than adequate addition to his squad.

At the age of 30, Venter is still in his prime and brings 152 games of Premiership experience to the youthful Arrows squad.

Since joining Ea Lla Koto from Bloemfontein Celtic in 2013, Venter has scored 18 goals and registered as many assists in 124 appearances.

The statement read:

"We would like to announce that we have secured the services of Danny Venter," the statement read.

"Danny joins us from Free State Stars where he has played since 2013, making 59 appearances for the side, scoring 7 goals.

"Previously he played for Bloemfontein Celtic from 2010 to 2013 where he appeared 41 times for the club. He scored 3 goals in his time there with them.

"We welcome Danny to the club and wish him well with his time with Lamontvile Golden Arrows."
