Out-of-favour SuperSport United striker Phumelele Bengu has signed for National First Division side Royal Eagles.

 

Bengu spent last season on the bench at United with other strikers getting the nod ahead of him.

The former Thanda Royal Zulu hitman finished as the NFD’s top goal scorer in the 2014/15 season which lead to him signing for Matsatsantsa a Pitori.

The striker is said to have been frustrated by his situation at United after it was reported that he was not in coach Stuart Baxter’s plans for next season leaving him with no choice but to leave the Pretoria-based club.
