Cape Town - Chippa United chairman Siviwe Mpengesi has revealed that both Kurt Lentjies and Puleng Tlolane have signed for the club as they aim to rebuild for next term.

Lentjies was a key member of the Maritzburg United outfit last season, captaining the side, while Tlolane also has a wealth of experience and joins from Polokwane City.

Mpengesi also stated that more players will be signed to strengthen the team, while the backroom staff can expect improvements as well.

"At Chippa we are busy signing players that we think are needed in the team," said Mpengesi, according to Sowetan Live. 

"We are also working on strengthening our technical team in terms of getting coach Dan Malesela an experienced assistant coach and a proper structure.

"Even though we have not officially announced it, we already have clinched contracts with two new players in Kurt Lentjies and Puleng Tlolane. There are also other players I will announce soon.

"Chippa supporters have been questioning if my decision to let James Okwuosa join Orlando Pirates was correct.

"James only played one game for Pirates. He is still contracted to them but he has been calling us pleading with us to talk with Pirates to bring him back. Those are some of the things that I have been working on."
