Top five January signings

Transfer News

Reeve Frosler (Bidvest Wits to Kaizer Chiefs)

He is one of South Africa’s most promising youngsters and now Frosler will get an opportunity to get some game time at Kaizer Chiefs after he was frozen out at Bidvest Wits. He was far below the pecking at right back, having to watch the likes of Thulani Hlatshwayo and Vuyo Mere playing ahead of him week in and out. At Chiefs he could get a chance to prove himself, as Ramahlwe Mphahlele is only coming back from injury now and Kgotso Moleko is in and out of the team.

Talent Chawapiwa (Baroka FC to AmaZulu)

After selling Emiliano Tade to Mamelodi Sundowns, AmaZulu did not waste time to get Zimbabwean international winger Talent Chawapiwa on their books. Chawapiwa has been one of Bakgaga’s best players since joining them last season and his game will certainly get better under the guidance of Usuthu head coach Cavin Johnson.

George Lebese (Mamelodi Sundowns to SuperSport United)

He’s been dying to get game time and he could see himself finally playing regularly now that he has left Sundowns to join Tshwane rivals SuperSport United on loan. Lebese just wants to play football and players who are often hungry to get back onto the pitch play their hearts out. It’s a chance for him to make up for lost time after sitting in the stands for most of his time at Sundowns.

Emiliano Tade (AmaZulu to Mamelodi Sundowns)

It hasn’t taken long for the Argentine to make a mark in the PSL and attract the interest of Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane. It’s tricky joining a club like Sundowns halfway through the season, but Tade will have some momentum from an impressive first half of the season. Unlike Jeremy Brockie, who was signed in January last year, Tade is good with the ball at his feet and can take players on. These are the type of players Mosimane likes having in his team.

Talk about him leaving SuperSport started before the transfer window opened the move finally happened earlier this week, as he made the move to Bidvest Wits, who are challenging for the title. Lakay has a chance of thriving at Wits because coach Gavin Hunt likes having speedy wingers who can take players on and whip crosses into the box.
