Siyabonga Nomvethe agrees new deal with AmaZulu

Nomvethe will continue playing at the highest level for the next six months after agreeing to extend his contract with Usuthu

AmaZulu FC have confirmed that Siyabonga Nomvethe will no longer be retiring from professional football in 2018. 

This comes after the 41-year-old signed a new short-term contract which will expire at the end of the season. 

Usuthu took to their social media platforms to announce Nomvethe's new deal. 

Nomvethe announced earlier this year that he would hang up his boots at the end of the current year. 

However, the veteran striker, who is PSL's all-time goalscorer, has decided to stay on for the remainder of the campaign. 

It is unclear if Nomvethe's decision to stay on and play until the end of the season was motivated by reports that Mabhuti Khenyeza could be leaving Usuthu for Maritzburg United.

Nomvethe has been an integral member of the AmaZulu team since joining them from Moroka Swallows in 2016.

His professional career spans over two decades, which includes spells in Italy, Denmark and Sweden among other countries.  

Nomvethe also played for Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
