Former Platinum Stars star Thembelani Majingo has agreed a one-year-deal with Botswana side, Holy Ghost Sporting, Thisisfootball.Africa can confirm.

Majingo, 24, has been a free agent since the start of this year and was free to join a team of his choice after parting ways with the ABC Motsepe league side, Taung Mega Stars.

Sources close to the player told this publication that, Majingo was invited for assessment in their camp last week and it did  not  take time for them to hand him a contract.

“Thembelani (Majingo) has signed with Botswana Premier League team, Holy Ghost Sporting on Wednesday,” a reliable source told Thisisfootball.Africa.

“He has signed a one-year-contract, and it seems like they can extend it, more especially when the team survives, because they are in a relegation zone.”

However, according to our sources, the presence of well-traveled midfielder, Maano Ditshupo in the league, has helped swing the balance in favour of Majingo to join Ghost.

“There’s this man called Maano Ditshupo, he is one who helped him to go that side for assessment with a few teams he played for,” added our Botswana-based informant.

“Ditshupo played at Township Rollers for years and was also captain of the club there, so he spoke with the coach of Holy Ghost to give Thembelani some few sessions, and fortunately, they were impressed in the first day.

“Then after that they started with negotiations for the contract until he finally signed at least a one-year-deal.”

The now default Platinum Stars product will be expected to help the team to get out of the relegation zone. Ghost is at the bottom of the Premier League log table, they have accumulated only four points after playing 14 games this season so far. His new team is still yet to win a match. They have lost ten games and drawn four.
