Darpoh has agreed to a three-year-deal which will be effective starting from the start of next season.

The defensive midfielder has played 14 games this season for Usuthu sand says he is happy that the club has shown confidence in him by offering him a new contract.

“I feel so happy and privileged for extending my contract with the club that took care of me, a club that gave me a platform when I first arrived in South Africa,” Darpoh told the club’s website about his new deal with the club.

“It’s with great honour and pleasure that I have committed my future to this club, and, I am very happy with this opportunity. It’s been a journey of hard work, coming from the youth structures of AmaZulu, being promoted to the senior side. It’s been a lot of hard work and dedication.”
