Free State Stars are set to lose one of the midfielders in their current squad after it emerged that he has signed a pre-contract elsewhere.
It has been confirmed by Siya sources in the know that Nhlanhla Vilakazi is set to leave Stars for AmaZulu. The 32-year-old central midfielder, who has been with Ea Lla Koto since 2015, has signed a pre-contract with AmaZulu.
“It’s a done deal, ‘Vila’ has signed a pre-contract with AmaZulu. He will be leaving Free State Stars at the end of the season,” said the source.
Vilakazi’s contract with Stars will finish at the end of the season. The player will be making his third return to KwaZulu-Natal for the 2018/19 season, as he previously spent time with Golden Arrows and Maritzburg United in his career.
