PSL Transfers News: All New Confirmed Signings in 2024-25

The latest news on incomings and outgoings in the South African top flight

The PSL transfer window officially opened in July but clubs were not waiting until then to start or complete their recruitment.

A number of clubs had already bolstered their squads while some are still assessing targets before completing the deals.

For some players, contracts are coming to an end and that means looking for new homes or negotiating fresh terms.
