Five Best PSL January Transfers

With the summer transfer window having come to a close on Friday afternoon, the Fan Park crew takes a look at five of the best deals that were concluded.

After having looked at five negotiations that never transpired on Sunday, here are five of the best transfers that were penned in before the window slammed shut last week.

Tshepo Gumede (Orlando Pirates)

The center-back joins the Buccaneers from Platinum Stars. He is expected to be thrown instantly into the team, where he will help ease out the old gaurd in Rooi Mahamutsa and Lucky Lekgwathi. He will add stability into a leaky backline, aerial potency inside the box and a decent amount of experience - despite only being 23-years-old.

Kingston Nkhatha (SuperSport United)

Signing from Kaizer Chiefs on what was initially a pre-contract deal, Nkhatha was probably one of the best deals to be concluded in January. He may have come under fire for not being clinical with all of his chances, but he will add some much needed fire-power to Gordon Igesund’s team. 

Daine Klate (SuperSport United)

Yet another player snapped up from a Soweto giant by SuperSport, Klate admitted he was only expecting a return back to Pretoria in June. His move may have come six months earlier than anticipated, but he will certainly add some charisma to a team gunning for a top six berth. 

Let’s not forget though that Klate enjoyed a copious amount of success with the Matsatsantsa in the past, and he could very well help bring back the glory days.

Tlou Segolela & Punch Masenamela (Platinum Stars)

The duo joined Platinum Stars just hours apart from each other, and they will certainly be a welcome addition to Allan Freese’s side. Having both been deemed surplus to requirements at Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively, both will add pace, width and passion to Dikwena’s game.

Here’s hoping that they can revive their careers in Rustenburg.
