Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen is thrilled to have signed fullback Thabang Matuka, according to Phunya Sele Sele chairman Max Tshabalala.
Matuka has joined his home team on a three-year contract after a four-year spell with Maritzburg United.
Matuka made 49 starts and eight substitute outings for United since his Premier Soccer League debut in 2011/12.
"Thabang has been our target," Tshabalala told the club's website.
"The coach Clinton Larson is thrilled that we have signed such incredibly talented player. He is a workaholic and his immeasurable work ethic and sheer determination will see him succeed at the team."
Tshabalala added: “I have known him as a young boy and have been proud to seen him represent the country at the national Under-20 and later on the U-23 level with such exceptional confidence.
“We are building an exciting team that will surpass this past season’s achievement and players like Matuka will help us achieve our goal."
Celtic, who finished seventh on the PSL table in 2014/15, also recruited bustling forward Geofrey Massa from University of Pretoria earlier this month.
