Players Who Signed A Pre-Contracts

Some players prefer to know where their future lie even before the transfer market comes around, and many have got into the habit of signing pre-contracts with clubs. Here are some PSL players who have done just that.

Clayton Daniels – SuperSport United
It only took six months after joining Bloemfontein Celtic, following his cutting of ties with Mamelodi Sundowns, for Daniels to pen in a pre-contract deal to move elsewhere. His new club was SuperSport United, and he has been there since.  

Kingston Nkhatha – SuperSport United
Probably the most famous one in recent years, SuperSport shocked Amakhosi fans when they announced they had agreed a pre-contract deal that would see Nkhatha arrive at the club in July 2015. But after things at the club escalated, the Zimbabwean striker opted make the move earlier than expected, arriving in Pretoria in January.

Bevan Fransman – Bloemfontein Celtic
In an exchange deal which was largely instigated by Clayton Daniels heading to SuperSport United, Fransman agreed a pre-contract deal to join Celtic - knowing he would have to compete with the Bishop Lavis-born defender if he remained at United. This move has since worked out well for him. 

David Zulu – Kaizer Chiefs
Following his solo goal against Pirates for Chippa United at the start of the season, Chiefs made a move for the striker. Negotiations resulted in him signing a pre-contract deal which saw him arrive at the Village in January 2015.

Katlego Mphela – Kaizer Chiefs
The striker had agreed a pre-contract deal with Chiefs back in January 2014, where he was expected to make the switch to Naturena at the start of the 2014/15 season. However, his fallout with Sundowns saw him join Chiefs earlier than expected, in the shape of a six-month loan spell before his transfer become permanent.

Limbikani Mzava – Mpumalanga Black Aces
The defender is currently at Bloemfontein Celtic but is expected to leave the club come the end of the season. Mzava penned a pre-contract deal with Aces back in January, which will see him arrive at the club on July 1.
