The Siya crew can confirm that Free State Stars have signed former Ajax Cape Town and Maritzburg United midfielder, Nhlanhla Vilakazi.
It was reported earlier this week that the 28-year-old midfield man was on trial with Ea Lla Koto at the request of Ernst Middendorp, with the German liking the player from when they worked together in Pietermaritzburg.
Now the crew has had it confirmed that the attacking midfielder has landed himself a contract in the Free State, however only on a short-term basis for now.
It remains to be seen when the club will be able to register the player, though there should be no delays as he was a free agent before they snapped him up.
Stars have just three games to play in 2015 before their Christmas break begins on December 20th, and Middendorp will no doubt be keen to have Vilakazi ready as soon as possible to help improve their 11th-place Absa Premiership position.
