Earlier this week it was predicted the Siya crew that the central midfielder was on the verge of concluding a move to the NFD side.

The Eastern Cape outfit confirmed on the club's Facebook account that Buthelezi has been signed alongside left-back Terrence Mashego, who is joining coach Ian Palmer’s side from the Tshwane University of Technology.

Bucks have confirmed all the club’s January signings, as well as their new partnership with African Bank.

Mthatha Bucks have confirmed the arrival of five players signed in the January transfer window, as well as the appointment of head coach Ian Palmer, and a partnership agreement with African Bank. The announcements took place at a press conference held at the Mthatha Stadium on Wednesday morning.

The earlier acquisitions of Sibusiso Hlubi (CT All Stars), Sydney Masana (Bloemfontein Celtic) and Madumetja Khwinana (Royal Eagles), as well as the new head coach, the vastly experienced Ian Palmer, were reconfirmed.

In addition, Amathol'amnyama have snapped up Nkululeko Buthelezi, a central midfielder from the Kaizer Chiefs Development ranks, and Terrence Mashego, a left-back from Tshwane University of Technology.

The following players have meanwhile been released: Siphelele Jonasi, Tapelo Sixishe, Moreko Mokone, Ruwan Xundu and Qiniso Mahlobo. The club thanks them for their services and wishes them well for the future.

In a very positive development for the club and for football in the region, Bucks welcomed on board our new partners in African Bank. A year-long official partnership has now begun with a view to a fully-fledged sponsorship.

"We are delighted to have partnered with African Bank and thank them for showing faith in the club. It shows that as a brand, Mthatha Bucks is on the right path.

We would like to also thank our supporters for the significant role they play in making the club's brand what it is," said the club's General Manger, Luxolo Matikinca.
