Kaizer Chiefs confirm arrival of new signing Andriamirado 'Dax' Andrianarimanana

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the arrival of new signing Andriamirado Andrianarimanana.

Andrianarimanana, better known as 'Dax', has finally arrived in South Africa following his controversial transfer from Madagascar.

The 27-year-old midfielder had been announced as one of Amakhosi's new signings at the end of June, after being crowned the COSAFA Cup Player of the Tournament.

However, Dax's Malagasy club Fosa Juniors rubbished claims that the player had been sold to the Soweto giants, insisting he was still contracted to the club.

Following extensive negotiations with Fosa as well as the Malagasy football association, Chiefs have finally landed their man.

Andrianarimanana, who has penned a two-year deal with an option for a further year, will now await his work permit before being allowed to feature for Giovanni Solinas's side.

“We have been working hard to ensure that the player comes to South Africa," Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung said in a club statement.

“We now have to work on finalising all his paper work and medicals but what’s important for us and the supporters is that he is here.”

Having missed a large chunk of pre-season, it may take some time for the attacker to gel with his new teammates.
