SuperSport United have announced the signing Of Bidvest Wits fullback Siyabonga Nhlapo on a three-year contract.
Nhlapo comes in as a direct replacement for Michael Boxall who was released at the end of June after he failed to agree terms on a new contract with United.
United CEO Stan Matthews says they have been watching Nhlapo for a while.
“Siya is a player whom we have been watching for a few seasons now. He has represented Bafana Bafana, having been called up by each of the last three national team Coaches (Gordon Igesund, Shakes Mashaba and Stuart Baxter). We have watched how well he did at Bidvest Wits, playing a major role in their 3rd and 2nd placed finishes in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons and with Grant Kekana doing so well in our last few games last season we look forward to the contest for the right back spot.”
