Attacking midfielder Bhongolethu Jayiya says he learned about Kaizer Chiefs’ interest in him towards the end of last season.

Jayiya bid his Cape Town City teammates farewell last week after his contract with the Mother City club expired.

The Soweto born midfielder agreed to a three-year-deal with Steve Komphela’s side which will see him at the club until 2020.

“I heard about the interest from Chiefs towards the end of my contract with City last season,” said Jayiya.

“This is a childhood dream becoming a reality. I am excited about this move and just want to get on to the pitch and let my feet do the talking. I am here to assist to bring back the glory days.”

Amakhosi’s Football Manager, Bobby Motaung is excited about the Soweto giants’ latest signing.

“We have been in talks with Bhongo over the last two weeks and finally signed him this (Thursday) afternoon,” confirms Motaung.

“We discussed with Cape Town City and they gave us a good report about his attitude. We also looked at the kind of system we are playing, with his agility and experience, he will come handy.”

Jayiya scored the quickest hat-trick in PSL history when he found the back of the net three times inside 16 minutes in a 4-1 victory over Chippa United in April last season.
