SuperSport Complete First New Signing

James Keene Is On His Way To SuperSport

By Soccer Laduma - May 14, 2018 11:40 AM

SuperSport United have moved quickly to bolster their striking department for the new season, swooping to bring in a forward from Bidvest Wits.

The Siya crew reported previously that Matsatsantsa were looking to bring in James Keene from the Clever Boys when his contract expired at the end of the season, and it appears that they have gotten their man.

According to Siya sources, the 32-year-old has penned a pre-contract with SuperSport that will kick in on July 1st, with the former Portsmouth man looking to get amongst the goals in Tshwane after finishing as Wits’ top scorer in all competitions in 2017/18.

Keene got 17 goals in 30 starts during his spell in Braamfontein, playing his part in helping the club lift the MTN8, Telkom Knockout and first-ever league title, and he will now be hoping to help SuperSport get back to winning ways after they secured their Absa Premiership status.

It is thought that the striker has agreed to a one-year deal with SuperSport with a one-year option should things go well in his first campaign at the club.

@Xolisa{khosificated} Baxter bought players and left and so is Tinkler hence Mr Mathews said this thing of coaches buying players must be considered at the club.

This guy is good. The only goal scorer in the PSL. Wits will miss him a lot. I love his attitude he wants to win. Perfect for SSU a lot of experience that they need. How could a coach not want him.

What if the new coach isn't interested in Keene? PSL teams must stop this tendency of signing players before coach.
