thumbnail Hello,

The two strikers have completed their moves to Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates, while Kaizer Chiefs' defender Lincoln Zvasiya is heading to Greece on loan

The early part of July has seen an increase in PSL transfer action, as teams are beginning to make wholesale changes to their squads in order to be prepared for the coming season.

Lennox Bacela's reported move to Orlando Pirates was confirmed by the club on Friday, with the former Bloemfontein Celtic striker set to play at the Orlando Stadium for the next three seasons.

Bacela told Pirates' official website, “I am delighted to have made my move to Orlando Pirates. This is an opportunity I will grab with both hands, and make the best of it.”

Another move which has been widely reported was finally confirmed on Friday, as experienced striker Benjani Mwawurari has joined Bidvest Wits on a one-year contract with an option to renew. Benjani will join the Wits squad as soon as he returns to South Africa from England.

Meanwhile, Asanda Mvalo has joined newly promoted Mpumalanga Black Aces, with the former Thanda Royal Zulu defender signing a one-year contract.

Another newly promoted club Polokwane City has secured the services of Siyabonga Nontshinga from Bloemfontein Celtic, as they seek to build their squad for the coming campaign.

OFI Crete FC has signed Lincoln Zvasiya on loan, with the Kaizer Chiefs defender seeking for regular competititive football after struggling to break into the starting XI last season.

Bobby Motaung commented on the move, telling the club's official website, "Lincoln is a top player. We looked at the team and thought it will be best for him to get game time at another club."

"We will continually monitor the situation and determine the way forward. It is also good for him to gain experience in a different country.

"He is still young and it is good for his growth and development as a player. And as a club we are spreading our wings in terms of creating relationships both nationally and internationally.

"Football-Club OFI CRETE was professional in the way they advanced their proposal and we looked at it and we found that the deal made sense for everyone. It is Kaizer Chiefs policy to open up opportunities for the players especially when those opportunities will grow and develop the players.”
