The Under-23 player’s future was uncertain as Celtic claimed they had extend his contract ahead of next season, with the winger disputing the club’s statement.

“The announcement ends speculation about the future of the player, who penned a five-year deal with the champions. Several PSL clubs were said to be after his signature,” read a statement on the club’s website.

“He joins Lucky Mohomi and Sibusiso Vilakazi as new signings, as coach Pitso Mosimane works at strengthening his side and looking for further balance in his team.”
