- Chief sign Ntshangase in surprise transfer
- The deal was kept a closely guarded secret, the coach didn't even know
- Ntshangase will start as soon as Tuesday next week
Kaiser Chiefs have strengthened their midfield attack with the successful signing of Siphelele “Stash” Ntshangase from Baroka FC.
Briefly.co.za learned that the negotiations which secured Ntshangase's transfer were carried out behind closed doors to avoid another club from swooping in and snatching the talented player.
Ntshangase signed his transfer papers in the middle of practice which sees him trading places with Chiefs William Twala according to the dailysun.co.za.
Baroka needed a new wing after their deal with Free State Stars didn't materialise. Twala has been struggling to prove himself, getting very little game time of late.
Ntshangase had signed on with Baroka at the beginning of the season for an eyebrow-raising R3-million. The midfielder is expected to be wearing a No. 10 Chiefs jersey as soon as next Tuesday.
"The move was kept a secret, so much so that Baroka coach Kgoloko Thobejane was unaware of the transfer and was informed by Doctor Khumalo that morning.
The talented player had not played too many matches for Baroka and his lack of game time was due to influenza according to Thobejane.
Rumours were doing the rounds last month that Ntshangase was not very happy at Baroka.
