Aces beat AmaZulu to Onyango

Denis Onyango signs with Mpumalanga Black Aces

Posted: 26 July 2010 Time: 1:18 pm

Mpumalanga Black Aces have scooped AmaZulu in signing Ugandan international goalkeeper Denis Onyango from SuperSport United.

The move, confirmed to KickOff.com by Aces’ chairman Mario Marfou today, puts an end to an agonizing month of uncertainty for the Cranes minder and presents him with another chance to show his class.

Onyango has moved from the triple League champions after a two-year stay in Tshwane for a fee of around R400 000. He signed a three-year contract, with the third year being optional. The entire deal is worth in excess of R2-million.

“I am being unveiled today. I have been in Pretoria because I need to go and get accommodation first before I can move with my family,” the 25-year-old told Uganda’s Daily Monitor.

Media speculation has been that AmaZulu looked Onyango’s likeliest destination.

“The AmaZulu deal fell through after we failed to agree on personal terms. The clubs had agreed theirs, but I wasn't happy with mine. And then my agent [Ivica Stankovic] came with a better offer from Aces,” Onyango discloses.

“For me it’s a brilliant new change, brilliant new challenges and I hope to do well,” said the former SC Villa and St George keeper.”

Normally it would be a huge step down, but for a man who has struggled to hold onto regular football at SuperSport and with the 2012 Nations Cup qualifiers beckoning, it was sensible that he looks for some action.

Seems aces means business this time around. Khoza must send Dukuduku there on loan and give them Gumbi for free.

Good sign My Province my advice is, do not take any players who are on loan.It seems every team that put their players on tranfers MP take them.

Mr Editor please update us how many players did aces sign so far cause it looks like they sign every player available. I must say they are signing good players.
They need to play some friendly games before the season start cause the players are not familiar with each other or style of play!

Good to see that Aces are meaning business this season, sooner or later they are bound to come right taking into consideration the sheer number of players they've acquired....one or two will definately stand out.

Unlike others who are pinning their hopes on the one goalles striker they've 'seized'.lol!...

'Two Klipper' for anyone who knows who I'm reffering to.....Clue: They are the most female supported club! mh! mh!
