SuperSport United have confirmed the signing of Phumlani Ntshangase on loan.

After letting go of several players and with Matsatsantsa keen on avoiding the mishaps of last season, the Tshwane-based outfit have been on a rebuilding mission.

Although, SuperSport have not gone on spending spree in the transfer market, they have brought on board several new faces.

Nonetheless, Ntshangase becomes the latest player to join SuperSport after he was snapped up on a one-year loan deal from Bidvest Wits where he was deemed surplus to requirements.

Despite being a key figure at the Braamfontein-based outfit of recent seasons, Ntshangase has fallen down the pecking order.

Last season, the 23-year-old managed just 13 appearances for Wits in what was a disappointing season for both the player and club.

While Ntshangase will be hoping for regular first team football, he will face stern competition at his new club.

SuperSport have the likes of Dean Furman, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Teboho Mokoena among others in the central midfield position.

Meanwhile, Ntshangase has revealed his delight as he completed his move to SuperSport on Wednesday.

“I would like thank the SuperSport United management in showing interest in securing my services again and believing me and I hope to repay them in the new season,” the player was quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter account.

“I won trophies at Wits and I am thrilled to be joining another winning team that enjoys regular success. I have played with a lot of the Matsatsantsa players at both club and international level & I am looking forward to challenging for my place in the starting line-up,” he added.

After completing his move, Ntshangase will now link-up with a former teammate in James Keene. The Englishman left the Students at the end of 2017/18 PSL and subsequently signed with Kaitano Tembo’s men.
