Mabizela Agrees Spurs Deal 13/08/03
English Premiership Tottenham Hotspur have announced they have agreed terms with South Africa skipper Mbulelo Mabizela over a proposed move to north London, meaning the Orlando Pirates defender will sign on at White Hart Lane, subject to the outcome of his work permit application.

English Premiership Tottenham Hotspur have announced they have agreed terms with South Africa skipper Mbulelo Mabizela over a proposed move to north London, meaning the Orlando Pirates defender will sign on at White Hart Lane, subject to the outcome of his work permit application.

Spurs has reached an agreement with Orlando Pirates and Mabizela, who returned to London with Glenn Hoddle's side following their recent tour of South Africa.

The 22-year-old has already featured in two pre-season games for Spurs, against Luton Town and Sporting Lisbon.

Hoddle said of the defender: "He did himself a lot of good. For a young boy to come over here and just pick the reins up as he has is not easy, but he's done it with some aplomb."

Former South Africa skipper and current Leeds defender Lucas Radebe backed his successor to shine in the Premiership.

He added on the Spurs site: "I've watched him in a few matches now, and he's a talented defender.
 
"He's going to be one of the best ever to come out of the country. He's already shown he's a leader. He not only leads by example, but he likes to be involved in everything regarding the team, and that's a very good sign.

"He's a big boy in terms of structure, and that is definitely going to help as the other players will take him seriously. I've heard him speak in camp. He's not as soft as some players. He's a bit bossy too, and what I've noticed in particular is that he commands the respect of most of the players in the squad.

"So I would say he has it all, and from what I have seen, there are very few areas in which he needs to improve."
