"He has already started training today and we are very happy, and the coach [Allan Freese] is very happy."

The 25-year-old Nene was influential for Roger Sikhakhane's AmaBhubesi last season as he featured in 28 league games.

Dlamini also confirmed that the club has also signed versatile player Nkanyiso Madonsela from Jomo Cosmos.
