Confirmed: Kaizer Chiefs beat Bloemfontein Celtic to Ntshangase's signature

Ntshangase has been one of the most sought-after signatures in domestic football having also been linked with Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United

Kaizer Chiefs have beaten Bloemfontein Celtic to Baroka FC midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase's signature.

Celtic reportedly made an improved offer for former South Africa youth international's services on Friday.

However, Baroka chief executive officer Morgan Mammila confirmed to TimesLIVE on Saturday that Ntshangase would be joining Amakhosi during the January Transfer Window.

“I can confirm that he (Ntshangase) will be a Chiefs player in January‚" Mammila said.

"We are finalizing the deal and I don’t see anything stopping the move from happening‚ given the progress that we have made with negotiations," he added.

The Bakgaga Ba Ga Mphahlele boss went on to confirm that it is a straight purchase and they are not getting any player from Amakhosi as part of the deal.

Ntshangase joined Baroka from National First Division (NFD) side Black Leopards prior to the start of the current season.

He featured in ten and he contributed three assists to help Bakgaga Ba Ga Mphahlele to fourth place at the halfway stage of the campaign.

Mammila also told the publication that the loss of the 24-year-old attacking midfielder is not a massive big blow for them.

“He was an important player for us but life goes on. We have other players in the team who will be given opportunities by the technical team to show what they can do for us," he said.

"We will also see what we can get in the transfer market and take it from there‚” he concluded.
