It was confirmed last week that Letsholonyane, Reyaad Pieterse and Keegan Ritchie had all joined Matsatsantsa from Amakhosi, with "Yeye" and Pieterse signing pre-contracts, and Ritchie being involved in a swap deal, with Sibusiso Khumalo going the the other way.

Now, as the trio prepare for life at their new club, SuperSport have issued statements from three of the parties that were involved in the moves.

Matthews on Pieterse
"Reyaad is a talented goalkeeper with a very promising future. Our coach wants strong competition for every position in the team and with Ronwen (Williams), Reyaad and Boalefa (Pule) between the poles, we think we have the strongest goalkeeping department in the league. When you add in young Mondli Mpoto, who is a national U20 goalkeeper, then the future looks bright for us in this area."

Yeye on joining SuperSport
"I am thrilled to be a part of SuperSport United. I know the coach from my time at Chiefs and I am looking forward to working with him again here.

"SuperSport have shown that they are a very professional club that looks after their players and are always competitive in the cups, and a team who are very tough to beat. I am also looking forward to playing in Africa in the Confederation Cup."

Baxter on Ritchie
"It's part of our philosophy to bring in talented young players who like to learn and develop themselves, and that's true of Ritchie. He is a talented football player with a cultured left foot, and will add value to our attacking set-pieces as well as our defensive structure."

The Nedbank Cup champions will begin their pre-season next month, and the three aforementioned players will not be the only fresh faces at Baxter's first training session of 2016/17, with more arrivals expected.
