Mamelodi Sundowns graduate among two new signings at Sekhukhune United

Babina Noko now have five fresh faces as they continue to shake up things

Mamelodi Sundowns academy graduate Keletso Makgalwa is among the new recruits at Sekhukhune United who have confirmed two more signings.

Makgalwa joins Relebogile Mokhuoane at Babina Noko who have now unveiled five new signings following the recruitment of midfielder Thabang Monare, goalkeeper Loydt Kazapua and left-back Vuyo Letlapa.

Makgalwa has joined Sekhukhune from Upington City where he had a renaissance and emerged as one of the top attackers, having managed 10 goals in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.  

Mokhuoane, meanwhile, joins Sekhukhune in a swap deal that involved Kamohelo Mokotjo heading to Cape Town City.

Sekhukhune rumoured to be close to unveiling four more players

Unconfirmed reports also indicate that Lindokuhle Mtshali, Njabulo Ngcobo, Andy Boyeli and Kenneth Langa will join Sekhukhune in the coming days.

Sekhukhune are looking to strengthen their squad after releasing 13 players at the end of last season.

Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Collins Makgaka, Lebohang Mabotja, Ntokozo Mtsweni, Thamsanqa Masiya, Rally Bwalya, Maloisane Mokhele, Tashreeq Morris, Michael Sarpong, Tshepo Rikhotso, Edwin Gyimah and Mokotjo were the players that were let go by the club.

Babi Noko will be under German coach Herr Peter Hyballa next season

The club is looking at a mix of youth and experience in their new signings with former Orlando Pirates midfielder Monare set to add the latter as they seek to improve on their fourth place of last season and potentially secure continental football.

Monare opted for Babina Noko over other clubs that were rumoured to be interested in his services such as newly-promoted Magesi FC and SuperSport United.

Sekhukhune also hired German tactician Herr Peter Hyballa last month with the highly-travelled 48-year-old former Borussia Dortmund youth coach signing a three-year contract.
