Orlando Pirates have confirmed the signing of former Highlands Park wing-back Wayde Jooste on a three-year deal.
Jooste had become available after Highlands Park sold their status last month to TS Galaxy and Pirates have subsequently pounced to secure the utility-man, who will add depth to the current squad.
« I am happy to have joined Orlando Pirates, » he told the club’s website. « This is an opportunity I look to grab with both hands.
« I know everybody says this is a dream come true but before I started playing professionally my father and I supported Orlando Pirates.
« Whenever we played against Pirates it felt special because I felt I was getting closer to my childhood dream. Today I find myself playing for the club that I not only support but a club that even my homeboy Daine Klate also played for. »
The 28-year-old featured 17 times for the Lions of the North across all competitions as they finished ninth in the last-ever Absa Premiership campaign.
