PSL transfer news: Ngubane signs for Black Aces after Pirates snub

Posted: 27 June 2015 Time: 15:00

As reported by KickOff.com, Siyabonga Ngubane has completed his move to Mpumalanga Black Aces after a proposed switch to Orlando Pirates fell through.

Pirates were poised to sign the midfielder but pulled the plug on proceedings at the eleventh hour.

Ngubane then held talks with Aces, which have borne fruit.

"I can confirm that he has signed with Aces," Ngubane's agent Mandla Mthembu tells this website.

"I won't give more details about his contract but give respect to the club to make an official announcement."

When asked about Bucs' advances, Mthembu says: "There were informal talks with Pirates but nothing was concrete.

"Aces came with a offer and we quickly jumped to the opportunity."

Ngubane joins AmaZayoni as a free agent after seeing out his contract at University of Pretoria.

The 26-year-old made 20 starts in the Absa Premiership in 2014/15.

Ngubane joined Tuks in July 2013 following a loan spell – along with Buhle Mkhwanazi – as part of the swap deal that saw Bongani Zungu go to Mamelodi Sundowns.
