A deal with a new club is on the cards for Jabulani ‘Jafefe’ Shongwe, despite having initially appeared to be staying with Highlands Park for the 2019/20 season.
Having joined the Lions of the North in March, initial indications had been that the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits player would be playing under coach Owen da Gama at the club again this season.
Instead, the 29-year-old has left the club and is on the verge of concluding a move to Swallows FC, according to sources in the know.
“Jafefe is at Swallows FC. He arrived at the club this morning (Wednesday) and started training with the team. The team is keen on signing him,” confirmed the source.
Since his promotion from Sundowns’ juniors to the senior team in 2010, the central midfielder has gone on to play for Wits, Golden Arrows, Chippa United and the Lions of the North in the Absa Premiership, and is now likely to join the likes of Lebohang Mokoena and Thapelo Tshilo, among other experienced players at the second tier club.
