SuperSport United have secured the services of an attacking midfielder from city rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.
Matsatsantsa have secured the services of Botswana international Mogakolodi Ngele on a short-term loan deal, the club announced on Friday.
The 27-year-old has struggled to break into The Brazilians outfit since his return from a loan stay at current Absa Premiership champions Bidvest Wits last season.
With in dire need of attacking reinforcements following striker Jeremy Brockie's move to The Brazilians, Eric Tinkler will now look to Ngele to assist up front.

The lanky attacking midfielder was instrumental in The Clever Boys' maiden league championship last season, managing three goals in 15 starts, while recieving glowing praise from coach Gavin Hunt.
"Since the departure of Jeremy Brockie to Sundowns, and with Bradley Grobler injured, we need some experience up front to help bring some of our youngsters through," said CEO Stan Matthews in a club statement.
"The same way Yeye has helped Teboho Mokoena and Sipho Mbule, our hope is that Mogakolodi can be that player, he has an amazing record, winning trophies wherever he goes and making critical contributions in big games.
"He will be with us for the remainder of the season and, if successful, we will see what we can do to extend his stay.”
