Kaizer Chiefs have officially announced they have signed skilled playmaker Siphelele Ntshangase from Baroka FC.

"Kaizer Chiefs would like to announce the arrival of another attacking midfielder‚ Siphelele Ntshangase from Baroka FC on a two and a half year deal with the option to extend his stay with Amakhosi for one year.
"Welcome to the Family!
Ntshangase has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Amakhosi.
Bobby Motaung had earlier confirmed the club hoped to tie up Ntshangase’s signature from Baroka FC on Thursday.
Motaung confirmed what had been told to TimesLIVE on Thursday morning by Ntshangase’s agent‚ Jazzman Mahlakgane‚ and Baroka CEO Morgan Mammila‚ that Chiefs had agreed to the Limpopo club’s asking price‚ and the deal would be concluded on Thursday.
Mahlakgane had said Ntshangase was on a plane to Johannesburg on Thursday morning to undergo his medical assessment with Chiefs.
The deal for Ntshangase to move to Amakhosi has been reported as on and off in the media‚ and on social media‚ at a bewildering pace.
Bloemfontein Celtic had been waiting in the wings to snap up Ntshangase in a proposed swap/sell agreement had Chiefs and Baroka not have been able to agree terms.
