First Division campaigners Thanda Royal Zulu have completed the signing of former youth international midfielder Jabulani Ncubeni from Golden Arrows and released six players.
Ncubeni joins Thanda on an 18-month contract after having gone in the opposite direction at the beginning of the season.
The 25-year-old, who has also previously played for Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic, battled for game-time at Arrows leading to his return to Thanda.
Thembinkosi ‘Jomo’ Biyela, the Thanda general manager, confirms the capture of Ncubeni along with the release of six players namely journeyman defender Phumlani Mhamha, Mncedisi Ndwandwe, Thabani Dube, Mandla Mdunge, Lindokuhle Mthembu and Mfundo Nsele.
“We have signed JB [Ncubeni] on an 18-month deal because he is a player that we felt we needed having previously played for us,” says Biyela.
“With the players that we have released it was due to despite them being good players they were not in the club’s plans for now. They now have their clearances and can join any club of their choice.”
Thanda also recently signed Siyabonga Shoyisa and Marothi Diale.
