“Another big signing for us,” club director, Nicholas Zakhem, said of Kgaswane. “This is part of our ambition to build a strong squad as we await the start of the new season.

Mpho isn’t new to our club and he has always said that the day he decides to return home, he will give us first preference. We believe we have a strong squad now to compete for honours.”
