Former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane has made his return to top-flight football.
He left Matsatsantsa at the end of last season, and while he appeared to be struggling to get a team, Owen Da Gama invited him over to train with the Lions of the North.
At the time, Letsholonyane maintained he was not ready to retire from professional football and even represented Bafana Bafana in one of the Chan qualifiers against Lesotho.
After weeks of negotiations, Da Gama made it clear he would like to have 'Yeye' in his team, the two parties finally reached an agreement on Tuesday, and the veteran midfielder signed on the dotted line.

Depending on how ready he is, Letsholonyane could make his debut for Highlands Park against Polokwane City on Sunday.
The 37-year-old is a veteran of over 358 top-flight matches across all competitions since making his debut for Jomo Cosmos over a decade ago.
He will be expected to bring about stability in Highlands Park midfield and help guide the younger players.
Letsholonyane joins the likes of Tendai Ndoro, Bevan Fransman and Tapuwa Kapini as one of the most experienced players in the current Highlands Park squad.
