Chippa United have announced their first signing ahead of the 2018/19 season, bringing in Orlando Pirates forward Gift Motupa.
Motupa has penned a three-year deal with the Chilli Boys that will keep him in Port Elizabeth until 2021.
This follows the 23-year-old's impressive displays on loan at Baroka this past season, where he scored nine goals in 22 appearances – just two shy of top scorers Percy Tau and Rodney Ramagalela.

The former junior national team striker initially joined the Buccaneers from Bakgaga in 2015, and his deal with the Soweto club was expected to end in 2020.
