The Siya crew reported recently that Matsatsantsa were trying to snap up the 18-year-old ahead of the new campaign as they looked to refresh their somewhat aging squad, with the teenager believed to fit the bill in terms of looking for bright young players for the future.

Now, with the 2018/19 season just around the corner, it has been confirmed that the defender has penned a long-term deal with SuperSport and will join them for the new campaign.

 

Fleurs told Ubuntu's official website, "I am excited for this new challenge, because it was always my dream to play in the PSL, and especially to play alongside players like Morgan Gould and Clayton Daniels who I’ve looked up to as a youth player.

“My time at Ubuntu has been a really good experience for the past six years, and they have done a lot for me, providing a quality school and football education and especially keeping me on the right road.  
 
“Ubuntu is about more than football, and they have challenged me to live well and to be a leader, which I hope to live up to.  I can only thank God, the Ubuntu family, and of course the Fleurs family, for all they have done to make this possible for me, and Supersport United for believing in me too.”
 
Fleurs is believed to have signed a three-year deal with a two-year option.
