Ea Lla Koto have signed the defender, just a week after he was released by Pirates.

Club coach Luc Eymael confirmed the player’s signing during the current international break.

“They [club management] signed Phungwayo,” Eymael tells

Ea Lla Koto are also said to be close to re-signing striker Edward Manqele who is left the club five seasons ago to further career at bigger clubs in the Absa Premiership.
