Anele Zibi has joined Mvela Golden League outfit Zulu Royals.
The former South African Under-23 defender spent two seasons at Castle Premiership side Ajax Cape Town before rumours suggested he was on his way to Bush Bucks.
However, Zibi failed to agree terms with the Eastern Cape side and joined the Usuthu this week.
He is expected to make his debut against Winners Park at the Seshego Stadium in Limpopo on Saturday.
Zibi could come up against former Orlando Pirates and Zulu Royals striker Andries Sebola, who signed a one-year contract with Winners Park on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, league leaders Vasco Da Gama travel to Tembisa where they will face Classic at the Mehlareng Stadium, in what is sure to be an exciting encounter, while Maritzburg United take on struggling Avendale Athletico at Hartleyvale on Friday night.
