PSL returnees AmaZulu have confirmed the signing of right-back Thembela Sikhakhane on a season-long loan from Orlando Pirates.
KickOff.com reported last week that Sikhakhane was on his way back to his home province following his battles at Pirates, where he spent the past season.
Brilliant Mkhathini, the Usuthu media officer, has confirmed that the 24-year-old has joined on a season-long loan deal.
Sikhakhane only joined Pirates at the beginning of last season from Golden Arrows, but could not get into the starting line-up ahead of the likes of Thabo Matlaba and Ntsikelelo Nyauza.
After making just 14 appearances last season, it was evident that Sikhakhane will move with his last appearance having come in February against Bidvest Wits.
Sikhakhane, who broke into the national under-23 team last year, will be looking forward to spending more time on the pitch than on the bench at Usuthu.
