Swallows FC has announced new player signings

Former Kaizer Chiefs left-back Yagan Sasman has joined Swallows FC as a new player.

The Dube Birds have also confirmed the return of Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Given Thibedi.

Thibedi has been on loan at Swallows for the past two seasons, although it is unclear whether he is back on loan or has signed permanently this time.

He will wear the same number 14 shirt that he has worn for the past two seasons at the club.

However, two weeks after being released by Amakhosi, Sasman has signed a one-year agreement with the Soweto side.

After being signed by Swallows this week from Mamelodi Sundowns, he joins his new team to find veteran left-back Tebogo Langerman.

In addition, Swallows coach Brandon Truter has enlisted the help of another Sundowns player, Jody February, who will help the team's goalkeeping.

February will compete against Virgil Vries, Thela Ngobeni, and Sanele Tshabalala for a starting spot.

Keletso Makgalwa, a midfielder who joins the Birds from Sundowns, has been given the number 35 jersey.

After making just six Premier Soccer League appearances for Masandawana previous season, he joins Swallows.

Meanwhile, Truter has found a substitute for centre-back Njabulo Ngcobo by signing Katlego Mohamme from Pretoria University ahead of Sundowns.

Mohamme, a member of the South African national Under-23 team, can also play as a left back but prefers to play in the middle of the defense.

The departure of Ngcobo to Kaizer Chiefs left a hole in Swallows' center defense.

Dillon Solomons, a midfielder from Cape Town All Stars in the National First Division, has also been added to the Swallows roster.

He has only played three PSL games for Stellenbosch in the 2019/20 season, which is his sole experience in the top division.

Some of the new arrivals could have an impact when the Swallows face Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 quarter-final match on Saturday.
