Free State Stars have started bolstering their team for the 2020/21 season with the signing of former Mamelodi Sundowns starlet Kamogelo Sambo.
The 22-year-old right-back has previously played for Sundowns' reserves, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila and most recently Royal Eagles.
Mamelodi-born Sambo, who has also represented Amajita, has signed a two-year deal with Ea Lla Koto.
"He's a former Sundowns and national under-20 and under-23 player, he has signed a two-year deal with Free State Stars," the player's representative Godfrey Mushanganyisi confirms to KickOff.com.
"He was playing for Royal Eagles this season, so he did not sign the two-month extension. Free State Stars gave him a pre-contract, which commenced as of 1 September 2020."
The Bethlehem-based side finished fifth in the GladAfrica Championship this season and missed out on the promotion playoffs, while Eagles were relegated to the ABC Motsepe League.
