Spanish Move Confirmed For Ex-Stars Defender

A defender, who previously played for the likes of Free State Stars, Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United in the PSL, has his move to Spain confirmed.

Spanish club CD Almunecar City has confirmed signing Thabang Matuka on a one-year deal to add him to the team's relatively young squad. 

Matuka played for Witbank Spurs in the National First Division last season, before the team's relegation to the ABC Motsepe League at the end of the campaign.
