Cape Town - The son of former Bafana Bafana and Leeds United captain Lucas Radebe has put pen-to-paper on a contract with English club Farsley Celtic.

Pending his international clearance, Radebe jnr, will join the Under-23 side in hopes of becoming a regular.

The 20-year-old's father earned legend status after his dominant defensive displays for Leeds in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

"We are delighted to secure the signing of Lucas Radebe jnr," read a statement on the club's official website.

"He has been training with our Under-23 lads this week and has impressed us with his technical ability and his pace.

"Lucas will be involved with the Under-23s as soon as his international clearance comes through.

"Our Under-23 squad is a group of very talented and hungry players working hard to progress the game. Although Lucas arrives with all the publicity, he is certainly one of those players.

"He has arrived from South Africa for the opportunity to develop in football, and a big thanks must go to chief Lucas Radebe snr for bringing him down to Farsley Celtic."
