Chippa close to signing Cloete
Chippa United CEO, Peter Kotroulis, has said that the side is close to confirming the transfer of Bloemfontein Celtic defender, Ruben Cloete.
"Yes, we have had a meeting with his management and like I said to you that we were close to finalising the deal - he has agreed to joining us," Koutroulis said.
"He will be joining us for 18 months although nothing signed yet for now, he has agreed to be our player."
Cloete’s signing will see him once again training under Chippa coach, Ernst Middendorp, who previously used to train him while still at Maritzburg United and Celtic.
"We’re delighted to have him in our ranks and he’s a great defender who’s highly rated by our new coach," Koutroulis added.
"We believe he will help the team in collecting points when we resume our league campaign next month."
The signing of Cloete comes shortly after the chilliboys roped in Celtic forward, Fadlu Davids, following Middendorp’s recommendation.
