Thabo Rakhale has a new club – four months after leaving Chippa United as his contract with the club had expired.
He will join TTM, as revealed by Siya sources, with the former Orlando Pirates star pictured in his new club colours and putting pen to paper.
Rakhale has been linked with several teams in the DStv Premiership over the last several weeks, some reports even suggesting he would return to Chippa to work with coach Lehlohonolo Seema, who only arrived at the club when he’d left.
With Rakhale a free agent, he could join a team of his choice even outside the current transfer window, which closes on November 30.
He was also linked with a move to back to Gauteng, specifically Kaizer Chiefs – but the Glamour Boys are banned by FIFA from registering new players until July next year.
TTM have been busy and Rakhale becomes their latest edition, though he would be wary of the recent player contract saga there.
The Limpopo based outfit, who were elevated to the Premier Division after purchasing the status of Bidvest Wits, have been embroiled in controversy over confirming players that have joined them only for those players to turn up elsewhere.
But with Rakhale clearly pictured in their shirt and signing what looks like a contract, this appears to be a solid done deal, understood to be until the end of the season.
