As reported by Phakaaathi earlier, Chiefs have been chasing the defender for some time but were put off by Stars’ asking price of R6 million.
A source close to Stars has informed Phakaaathi that Chabalala has now signed a three-year deal with Pirates.
“Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza managed to convince Stars boss Mike Mokoena to sell Chabalala to Pirates. Chabalala will be a Pirates player next season. He has signed a three-year deal with Pirates.”
Chabalala joins Thabo Matlaba, Ayanda Gcaba and Mpho Makola as another player that has moved from Stars to Pirates in recent seasons.
