Chansa was most recently with Zambian champions Zanaco but has now returned to South Africa to reunite with Eagles coach Kosta Papic.
The Serbian was at the helm at Pirates during Chansa’s first stint with The Bucaneers from 2004-07.
Papic has confirmed to KickOff.com that the 33-year-old has signed for the club and is now awaiting his work permit before he becomes eligible for selection.
“Chansa is already training with the club and has signed but is waiting the issuing of his work permit,” Papic tells KickOff.com.
Eagles are chasing promotion this season and feel the experience of the Zambian midfielder will help them with that target.
They are currently in the second Promotion Play-Off Position, nine points behind leaders Thanda Royal Zulu with two-thirds of the season played.
