The PSL's New Players Starting XI

Prior to the transfer window being shut on Wednesday, a lot of teams bolstered their squads with new signings, but who are the best acquisitions and how would they line-up in the same team? 

Today, we take a look at a starting XI of players who signed for new clubs during the latest transfer window. 

GK: Reyaad Pieterse (SuperSport United)
The lanky goalkeeper made the switch from Kaizer Chiefs to SuperSport United. He's considered a quality goal-minder, but received limited game time owing to the stiff competition he faced from Itumeleng Khune and Brilliant Khuzwayo at Naturena. At United, Pieterse will now compete with Ronwen Williams for a starting berth. 

LB: Tefu Mashamaite (SuperSport United)
While his natural position is that of a centre back, "Masha" can play at left back too. The defender made a shock return to the PSL after just 12 months spent playing for Sweden's Hacken. His return sees him link up with his former Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter.

CB: Abbubaker Mobara (Orlando Pirates)
The new Buccaneer proved why he's so highly rated when he matched Neymar pound for pound when Young Bafana held Brazil to a goalless draw during their Olympics campaign. Mobara joined Bucs from Ajax Cape Town.

CB: Ramahlwe Mphahlele (Kaizer Chiefs)
The versatile defender can be deployed either in the right back position or as a centre back. "Rama" was a mainstay in the defence of eventual league champions Mamelodi Sundowns last term.

RB: Anele Ngcongca (Mamelodi Sundowns)
Considered to be Sundowns' marquee signing, Ngcongca needs no introduction. He has wealth of experience, and is largely regarded as a suitable replacement for Mphahlele. 

LW: Aubrey Modiba (SuperSport United)
Affectionately known as "Post Man" because of his ability to deliver on the field of play, Modiba is part of the Bafana squad that will play against Mauritania tonight. He joined Matsatsantsa from Cape Town City on deadline day. 

CM: Xola Mlambo (Bidvest Wits)
The central midfielder could be the signing of the season for Bidvest Wits if his displays in the opening games are anything to go by. Mlambo was on the books of Chippa United last season. 

AM: Sibusiso Vilakazi (Mamelodi Sundowns)
The attacking midfielder finally made a move to a big team after years of speculation. "Vila" is one of the best attacking midfielders in the country, and at the end of the 2013/14 campaign, he was named Football of the Season.

RW: Bernard Morrison (Orlando Pirates)
The Ghanaian stole the show when AS Vita played against Sundowns in the African Champions League, and the Buccaneers immediately snapped him up. If he settles in well at Mayfair, he is likely to be a contender for Player of the Season. 

FW: Gabadinho Mhango (Bidvest Wits)
Very effective on either wing or as a striker, Mhango was on the books of Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows last season. The Malawian has enjoyed a great start to the new season, having already bagged an assist.

FW: Charlton Mashumba (Highlands Park)
PSL newcomers Highlands Park have landed themselves a gem in Charlton Mashumba, who previously donned the colours of Jomo Cosmos. The Zimbabwean is deadly in front of goal and is expected to form a formidable partnership with Collins Mbesuma.

What do you think of this line-up? Can you come up with a better squad filled with new signings?
