Nhleko signs two-year contract with Cosmos

Jomo Cosmos' scoring problems could be over after they re-signed their former striker Nkosinathi Nhleko.

Last month, Nhleko signed an 18-month contract with English Division One club Walsall. But the deal has since fell through after the British authorities declined his application for a work permit.

According to Cosmos assistant coach Collen Tlemo, Nhleko has signed a two-year contract.

Cosmos are now waiting for Nhleko's international clearance from the US.

The 25-year-old player last played for US Major League Soccer club FC Dallas (formerly known as Dallas Burn).

Tlemo also disclosed that Cosmos will re-sign Sipho Sephadi next Tuesday. Sephadi left the club early this season after failing to agree terms on a new contract with them. He tried but failed to get a team.

Meanwhile, Moroka Swallows coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed that lanky striker Lungisani Ndlela is leaving the Birds to join SuperSport United.

Ndlela has for the past few months been a subject of discussion after it was reported that Swallows were paying him a R4 500 monthly salary.

The player came on from the bench and scored Swallows' winning goal on Wednesday.

Ajax have signed Seuntjie Motlhajwa from Cosmos. The Urban Warriors have also signed Thembinkosi Fanteni from Vodacom Second Division club Mother City.

Joint league top goalscorer Sandile Ndlovu is returning to Mamelodi Sundowns. Ndlovu has been on loan at Dynamos and his exploits have forced Sundowns to recall him. - Sapa
