Spurs Set To Sign World Cup Ace

Written by Viorel Mesca

Despite that the transfer market re-opens in January, Spurs are already looking for new faces. Having impressed Harry Redknapp during a trial in September, Bongani Khumalo has reportedly signed a pre-contract agrrement with Spurs.

Bongani Khumalo played in all of South Africa’s games at the 2010 Fifa World Cup, scoring a goal in his side’s 2-1 win over France. Immediately after the tournament, the player was linked with a move to Tottenham, due to the partnership between Spurs and SuperSport United.

Having been forced to manage with only one fit central defender on several occasions this season, Spurs will welcome the arrival of Khumalo as the South African international will boost the team’s defensive options.

According to, Khulu Sibiya, the chairman of SuperSport United said:

“Bongani has been an exceptional player for Supersport United. His three-and-a-half years at the club has seen him develop into one of the best footballers in the country and his contribution was a major factor in the club-winning three consecutive Absa Premiership League titles. Everyone at the club wishes him well in his future career at Tottenham Hotspur.

We are equally proud of the fact that Bongani is joining our partners, Tottenham Hotspur, with whom we have enjoyed a fantastic and fruitful relationship since 2007 and we are convinced that this relationship will continue to grow from strength to strength in the years to come.”

Everything is set for Khumalo’s arrival at White Hart Lane, except for the work permit which should be only a formality.

Dear readers, do you think Bongani Khumalo will be a good transfer for Spurs? If not, what defender would you like Spurs to buy in the next transfer window?

    Yes, i agree with you hope he is another VDV buy.

    Hope he is also another King. Dawson is like a prince when compare with King. Dawson plays very well when King plays so i think if this guy is as good or better than King then Dawson will play without fear.

    Or if he is as good as Dawson then that’s fine as well, because Dawson is sensational, just below King.
