The left back has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Chilli Boys.

“Executive Chairman, Siviwe Mpengesi has confirmed that the club has signed left back Pentjie Zulu on a 3 & half year deal from Bidvest Wits,” wrote Chippa on their official website.

Zulu becomes Chippa’s fifth signing this past transfer period after the club added Sello Japhta, Donald Mokondelela, Justice Chabalala and Yurigg Conwood.

The Chilli Boys have also lost defenders Marc van Heerden and James Okwuosa to Orlando Pirates.

The duo was part of a swop deal that saw Japhta, Mokondelela and Chabalala joining the club on loan from Pirates.

Thembinkosi Lorch, who was on loan from Pirates, also returned to the Buccaneers.
