KickOff.com can confirm that Chippa United have completed the signing of defender Pentjie Zulu from Bidvest Wits according to Chippa Mpengesi.
Zulu, who has been turning out in midfield for the Clever Boys' Multichoice Diski Challenge side in recent weeks, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with United.
The former Jomo Cosmos defender is touted as a perfect replacement for the recently departed Marc Van Heerden who has left the club to join Orlando Pirates.
"Zulu is a player we have been following for a while and we were aware of his talent even before he joined Bidvest Wits," said Mpengesi.
"I have no doubt that under the tutelage of our coach Dan Malesela he will continue with his development and he'll become one of the best defenders in the country.
"We would like to thank Bidvest Wits and all the parties involved for their professionalism during the negotiations."
