SuperSport Secure New Signing

SuperSport United have agreed terms in principle over the signing of Zimbabwe international defender Ronald Tapiwa Pfumbidzai on a pre-contract.

The Chippa United man, who’s comfortable at left-back and centre-back looks set to fill the hole left by the imminent exit of Thatayaone Ditlhokwe to Kaizer Chiefs, while PSL legend Onismor Bhasera is said to be considering retirement at the end of the current season.

It marks another shrewd piece of business from CEO Stan Matthews and head coach Gavin Hunt as they look to bolster their squad in his second season at the club, that’s brought a new sense of optimism around Matsasansa, as they occupy second place in the league going into the final seven games of the 2022/23 season.

iDiski Times understands the former Bloemfontein Celtic full-back, who arrived in South Africa back in 2017 after a stint in Denmark, has agreed terms on a three-year contract.

Hunt has fielded the likes of Neo Rapoo and Thapelo Maseko as make-shift defenders this season when Bhasera was not available for selection, making that role one of the priority additions for next season.

And the 28-year-old will arrive with vast experience of the DStv Premiership and international experience with the Warriors as they look to hit the ground running.
