Done Deal: Defender Completes Switch
Black Leopards Strengthening The Squad With Defender Shane Thompson
An upcoming South African defender has completed his switch from one NFD club to another during the January transfer window.
Shane Thompson – a former Jomo Cosmos defender, has completed a move to Black Leopards after plying his trade for Mthatha Bucks during the first half of the season.
“It’s a done deal. Black Leopards have strengthened their defence with the addition of former Jomo Cosmos and Mthatha Bucks defender Shane Thompson to the squad – on a two and a half year deal,” said the source.
Contacted for comment, Lidoda Duvha’s team manager Elijah Mulaudzi confirmed to the Siya crew that Thompson is with the Limpopo outfit.
Thompson is a utility player who can play either as a centre back or a defensive midfielder. The 23-year-old is expected to be a good addition to Leopards’ squad for the second half of the 2017/18 NFD campaign.
