Kgaswane joins Baroka

The skilful Gaborone United winger Mpho Kgaswane will start the 2017 football stanza in the Absa Premiership’s gold and green regalia of Baroka United FC after penning a three year deal with the team this week.


A statement from the club confirmed the development. “It is almost a done deal; Mpho Kgaswane is heading to Absa Premiership where he will join Baroka FC. He is expected to leave before weekend,” read the release from the Reds. The player is said to have been represented by the renowned South African agency Siyavuma Sports Group. The talks between the two teams are said to be at an advanced stage, and the nitty gritty of the deal are still the best kept secret.


Kgaswane who first caught the eye of the South African teams in 2015 after the COSAFA cup has joined the team which his managers, Siyavuma believe it is the right path for the 23 year old dribbling wizard. Polokwane City, Jomo Cosmos and Platinum Stars were some of the teams that had initially shown interest in the Ramotswa born player’s talent, which were rejected by Siyavuma.


Siyavuma CEO Paul Mitchell was quoted then by South African media as having said, “Yes, Mpho is a special talent that has come through in the last few months from the U23s to the senior team. We are quite clear with the path that we want him to go in his career, and we have discussed that path at length with the player, his current club (Gaborone United) and club owner, Mr. Zakhem, who we have a very good relationship with”.


Baroka, who are currently languishing at the bottom of the Premier Soccer League with 12 points, will be looking to Kgaswane to bolster them in a bid to get out of the relegation quagmire. The expectation is with former Township Rollers Coach Mark Harrison as the Technical Director, Kgaswane will hopefully make selection for first team position to prove his mettle.


TRANSFER RUMOUR MILL


Orapa United are said to be hot in the toes of Nico United duo of Nelson Moreetsi and Gift Moyo. Nico United has confirmed the interest from Madinda Ndlovu’s side and they will be waiting on how the two parties negotiated before putting theirs on the table. Another mining side Jwaneng Galaxy are reportedly sweet talking their former South African wingers Atisani Batsi and Tshepo Borake for a possible reunion. Their defender Gaopatwe Seosenyeng has parted with the team to join Mochudi Centre Chiefs.


Gaborone United has according to reports shown interest in Orapa United defender and Captain Thabang Mosige. Two foreigners are also expected to join Gaborone United this transfer window. Tendai Nyamazawo has also joined Mochudi Centre Chiefs from Gilport Lions while Mosimanegape Ntwaetsile is also linked to his former club Extension Gunners.
