The modest Cape Town club is rebuilding in order to make a bold bid to fight for promotion this season after having flirted with relegation in their first season in the league last term.
Ngobeni, who has already been training with the club, will boost Hanover on the left flank.
Although he is yet to put pen to paper, the club has already expressed their interest in signing the Giyani-born winger.
The 32-year-old left winger has been at Stars since 2001 and has been used sparingly over the years.
His contract was not renewed at Stars last season as he has seen little game time since Tshepo Ramokala made the left wing position his own.
Ashwin Sutton – the newly appointed coach at Hanover Park - spoke with excitement about the arrival of Ngobeni.
“We are aiming at building a team that will win games on a regular basis and qualify for the play-offs,” he says.
Also at Hanover Park is former AmaZulu striker Bulelani Matross, whose search for a new club appears to be continuing by the week as he has had trials at Black Aces and Bay United.
Hanover have already brought in former youth international Seuntjie Motlhajwa, who has previously played for Ajax Cape Town, Supersport United and Jomo Cosmos.
