SuperSport United have snapped up teenage defender Grant Kekana from First Division side University of Pretoria on a three and a half year contract following the same route that they took when they acquired another defender, Bongani Khumalo, from Tuks in June 2007.
The 18-year-old Kekana has a number of similarities to Khumalo, who has since left for Tottenham Hotspur in England, in that he is also tall and plays in central defence. SuperSports chief operations officer Jose Ferreira confirms that they have signed Kekana and will be registering him with the PSL this week. "We have acquired Kekana on a permanent move from TUKS and he has signed a three and a half year contract." Ferreira adds that they are still awaiting Zambian defender Davies Nkausu's permanent residence permit that will enable him to be registered as a local. Meanwhile, Tuks have released five other players. AmaTuks coach Steve Barker said apart from Kekana they have mutually agreed to terminate the contracts of Thabang Monare and Mduduzi Makwakwa and loaned Wesley Strydom, Itumeleng Lesu and Musa Sesele to a SAB League development club.
