Chippa United have announced 11 new signings as they get ready for their 2017/18 Premier Soccer League campaign in South Africa.
Coach Dan Malesela and his technical team will want to lead the side to a decent finish as they survived the relegation axe in their last term.

On the other hand, Highlands Park striker Moeketsi Sekola joins on loan as well as Mamelodi Sundowns' Samuel Julies.
Among the new faces is Phetso Maphanga, Stanley Makgoka, Xolani Maholo from the MultiChoice Diski Challenge side and Zitha Macheke.
Meanwhile, former Platinum Stars winger Mahlatse Makudubela has also joined the Port Elizabeth-based outfit on loan from the Sea Robbers.
