Official: Xulu Signs In Europe

Siyanda Xulu is returning to Europe, the move being confirmed officially on Wednesday morning by his new club.

The 27-year-old will join Israeli giants Hapoel Tel Aviv next season as he begins a new chapter abroad having had a stint in Russia with FC Rostov between 2012 and 2015.

After a difficult final year there, the highly-rated defender became Kaizer Chiefs’ marquee signing five years ago, but did not find it easy at Naturena under then coach Steve Komphela before finally joining Maritzburg United three years ago.

“We are really happy for Siyanda, he deserves an opportunity like this, not an easy thing to secure an overseas move in this climate for any player,” his agency Siyavuma Sports Group said in a statement to the Siya crew.  

“A lot of hard work has gone in from our side, but as always we know Siyanda will go there and give it his all. He’s a great professional, fantastic player and a gentleman to go with it and someone we all value within the team at SSG.”

Xulu had an incredible three years at Maritzburg and due to Covid-19 affecting the club’s budget it was confirmed he would not be staying on beyond June 30 this year.

He now has a fresh start in Europe at a club that is consistently pushing for a spot in the Uefa Champions League and Europa League.
