South African midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo has signed a three-year deal with Dutch Eredivisie side PEC Zwolle.

The midfielder previously played for SuperSport United before moving overseas in 2008 where he signed with Feyenoord and then went on loan to Excelsior before moving back to Feyenoord.

Mokotjo says he is delighted with his move to Zwolle. “I was ready for a new challenge and I am happy with this opportunity.

“A few weeks ago the club showed some interest in me and after an initial discussion with Zwolle coach Ron Jans and technical director Gerard Nijkamp, I was positive that something good would happen.

“This season Zwolle have done well in all competitions. They also have a great stadium, a good vibe and big crowds that I can’t wait to play in front of,” he tells the club site.

Nijkamp says he is pleased with their acquisition. “For PEC Zwolle, Kamohelo Mokotjo is a real asset. He is the type of player that we do not have. He creates the perfect balance in midfield and creates space.

“We are very happy that it has worked out as we have wanted this player for a long time," he adds.

Tsetse Flies have won the Danone Cup Three times and Mokotjo was the captain of the 2003 winning team. From the initial under format of the under 12(before being converted to schools) Supersport United has the highest number of players that turned professional that have participated in the tournament e.g Khwela, Erasmus, Zongo. Orlando Pirates who had the highest number of players that have participated has 0zilch in thus far....

HALELUYAH. FINALLY!. Atleast he joined a league team and not a mvela one. A player of his calibre deserves regular football. I was concerned that brothel mamedoti sunclowns were going to sign him then ruin him the way they destroyed tham sangweni,vilakazi etc. Goodluck to mokotjo. He will take his rightful place alongside furman/dikgacoi.

What a true talent! @ DJScratch,I agree ma man. This boy's better than Yeye and Jali and has had great vision and skill on the boy since his Tse-Tse Fly years. We used to watch him play during our Junior playing days Nd he used to dazzle. Ooooh how I wish I could grab a hold of that Tse Tse fly squad that left Zizu breathless. *someone please get it for us* KO get onto it!
Feyenoord's been toying with your talents for years now. Its time you show them what they missed out on and take PEC Zwolle to great hieghts as it seems their technical team is very keen on your talents.
Goodluck superstar.

That was indeed an Orlando Pirates Junior team,but just like U17 Pirates team that won the NIKE Premier cup in Manchester a few years ago,they seem to have disappeared into thin air. The problem is not the nurturing of players and sourcing of young talent,it's instead our late use of such talents. Our local clubs dont believe in our youth unless its been tested elsewhere 1st. The only teams in the league that do are/were Ajax and SSU and only bcos of their ties with European clubs who dont mind gettong those players abroad and using them. Teams such as Pirates,Chiefs,Sundowns etc only believe in nurtiring foreign talents instead.
Serero,Pienaar,Mahlangu,Ranti,Clasen,Ngongca,Patosi and Mokotjo are only a handful of talented players the country produced that were goven a chance by foreign clubs and not local teams. Maybe we need to start setting up our development structures in Europe so our youngsters can get a better chance at going pro at an earlier stage as we will only be interested in them locally when they hit their peaks.
Development needs to change from senior level.

@Trouble-Touch the Chief, he should be grateful he spent those years at Feyenoord, they nurtured him and now he is a player with European mentality, it will be easy for him to join any team there in any league than your Jalis, Yeyes, etc. remember Steve lokoelea had the same chance when the sane Feyenoord wanted to sign him without any trial, then acted stupidly , left and came back to SA, citing the funny language(Dutch) spoken over there, and came back for R6500 at Pirates. He must be kicking himself on the heals seeing the likes of Benni, Pienaar driving Aston Martons, Bentleys, while he went to Swaziland to try and make a living. Another player who made the very same mistake is Kermit Erasmus, watch this space, he will forever regret coming back to Mzansi. To Mokotjo, I would say hang in there, u might end up in the Premier league and become a millionaire one day. Look at what dedication did to Aaron Mokoena. He was called all these kind of nasty names, a cow, N1, etc, but am sure life is pretty sweet got him because he had a strong character and stuck in there even when it got tough. GOOD LUCK BOY, whatever happens never come back to SA. stuck it in there and make a better living for urself and ur family.

@assassin not forgeting sifiso myeni who chose to sign for pirates when brondby wanted him becoz pirates offered him more money...dont get me wrong there is nothing wrong with going for the money...but @23 u should not be making a money move! We all know pirates is not a selling team he will see through his contract and @ 27 there wont be any chance to go to europe and make the real dough when u play for pirates,chiefs or downs in sa...thats the limit! U cant move higher than that! U can only go down from there while a guy like siyanda xulu is playing for a less popular team but will get very good experience in conditions in europe and open more doors coz possibilities are unlimited in europe if u work hard

@candyman, u r right. Katlego Mphela was in France as a teenager, did the same stupid mistake and came back here. By the time he realized his mistake, Sundowns wouldn't let him go, and guess what's happening to him now. Although I feel sorry for him, cos he is a very humble boy. I once met him, and we spoke like we had known each other for a long time. I was so impressed that he had time to have a chat with me, a total stranger. I'm just glad for him atleast he is earning some good money at Sundowns. I'm a Chiefs fan, but the same cannot be said about Khune, very bigheaded. Schillo also ok, so are Yeye, Shabba, Dokgacoi. They have time for fans.
