George Lebese, who confirmed the termination of his USA contract last month, has found a new home in the Premier Soccer League top-flight.
The Siya crew can reveal that the ex-Kazier Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns attacker has signed a short-term deal with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila just two weeks after he had his Colorado Springs Switchback deal terminated.
Lebese, 32, was unable to travel back to the USA to rejoin his club due to the Covid-19 restrictions, with SA being a red zone and their citizens denied entry.
With that in mind, he was resigned to looking elsewhere and TTM have come to the rescue and are adding to what is already an impressive squad, though there’s been plenty of controversy surrounding the club since the start of the 2020/21 season.
Businessman Masala Mulaudzi purchased the top flight status of Bidvest Wits in June last year, but later sold the club in January to Abram Sello.
TTM are currently second from bottom on the DStv Premiership log table with 11 matches to go, so Lebese, if immediately fit, will be expected to help them avoid relegation.
Siya sources have informed the crew that Lebese has signed a short-term deal until the end of the season and although he got his clearance outside the PSL transfer window, his registration is not expected to be an issue due to Covid.
