CAPE TOWN – Following the signing of Free State Stars striker Siphelele Mthembu last week, Cape Town City have brought in two up-and-coming youngsters into their squad.
South African junior internationals Keanu Cupido and Karabo Ngwenya have both signed long-term deals with City and bring the total of new arrivals at the club up to six, following the earlier acquisitions of Riyaad Norodien, Gift Links, defender Kouassi Kouadja and Mthembu.
Cupido, a 20-year-old defender who was previously at Bidvest Wits, arrives from French side Ajaccio, while Ngwenya, who will start out in City's Reserve side, is a striker. On the flip side, the Citizens saw left winger Lyle Lakay departing for Mamelodi Sundowns last week.
Meanwhile up the coast in Port Elizabeth, the Chippa United revolution apparently continues - after a spate of new arrivals over the last few weeks, the club recently announced the signing of Orlando Pirates trio Bernard Morrison, Thamsanqa Sangweni and Thabo Matlaba.
However, the Chilli Boys may have jumped the gun as Pirates have only confirmed the departure of Sangweni, with Matlaba and Morrison's moves seemingly anything but sealed.
