Chippa United is expected to unveil Jabulani Shongwe as the team's new signing.
Shongwe has agreed to a move to the Chilli Boys, as confirmed to the Siya crew by sources close to the Port Elizabeth outfit. Following his exit from Golden Arrows at the end of last season, Shongwe had a stint training with Maritzburg United under the team's head coach Fadlu Davids.
However, it was Chippa who showed serious interest in the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits, as they lured him to the Eastern Cape by offering him a deal.
"Jabu has signed for Chippa United. It's a done deal. The club is planning to give him jersey number 10," said the source.
With Jersey 10 at Chipppa previously worn by former team captain Andile Mbenyane, it remains unclear whether Shongwe is likely to appear in it, as the former has still been with the team up to this stage.
