Free State Stars have announced the release of five players and also confirmed the signing of Republic of Congo international playmaker Harris Tchilimbou from AC Leopards.

In a statement on the club’s website, Stars said they’ll be announcing new signings within the coming days.

The Stars statement:

Free State Stars can confirm the departures of five players while the only arrival thus far has been Republic of Congo international playmaker Harris Tchilimbou from AC Leopards.

Long-serving winger Danny Venter has joined Golden Arrows and Gabonese striker Allen Nono has been released from the club as the two permanent exits, while Mumuni Abubakar, Sello Japhta and Olivier Kwizera have left on six-month loan deals.

Abubakar, 24, made three appearances in the Premiership this season since his arrival from Black Leopards but make the switch to Richards Bay FC in order to earn more regular first team football.

Kwizera, the 22-year-old Rwanda international goalkeeper has joined Umtata Bucks after recently recovering from a serious knee injury and playmaker Sello Japhta joins him at the National First Division side – as they look to help the team avoid relegation.

New signings will be announced within the coming days.
