Stellies swoop for Baroka star


DStv Premiership side Stellenbosch FC have completed the signing of Baroka FC midfielder Nhlanhla Mgaga to reinforce their squad ahead of next season.

Mgaga has signed a three-year deal with Stellies after successful negotiations between the club and his representatives in Cape Town on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old midfielder becomes the second player to join the Cape side from Baroka after defender Vusi Sibiya recently sealed a transfer.

Mgaga was also on the wanted list of both Sekhukhune United and Maritzburg United but favoured a move to Cape Town.

"Mgaga has signed for Stellenbosch," a source close to the player's camp revealed to KickOff.

"He signed yesterday [Wednesday]. There was interest from other teams but he opted for Stellenbosch because he believes they will offer him a good environment to improve as a player and develop his career."

Stellenbosch recently sold attacker Ashley Du Preez to Kaizer Chiefs in a blockbuster move.
