Bongani Mpandle has left Maritzburg United after spending six years in the capital Town of KwaZulu Natal, to join Cape Town City for the upcoming Dstv Premiership season.
The 28-year-old goalminder has played second fiddle to Richard Ofori and Marcel Engelhardt for the past three seasons.
During his time with Maritzburg, Mpandle started 32 games in all competitions and was frequently used in Cup matches.
FARPost has been informed by a reliable source close to the player that Mpandle has joined Cape Town City.
“Yes, he has left Maritzburg United, I spoke to him yesterday and he told me that he is joining Cape Town City.”
The former Bloemfontein Celtic shotstopper is expected to sign on the dotted line this week for the Citizens, who recently captured Darren Keet.
“Surely he will be unveiled soon, he has confirmed that he is in Cape Town already to finalize the deal,” said the source.
The Team of Choice are left thin in the goalkeeping department after the departure of Jethren Barr and now Mpandle.
