Tottenham have completed the transfer of Bongani Khumalo from South African side Supersport United on a four-and-a-half year deal.
Khumalo had impressed at a trial for Spurs last July and impressed during the summer for World Cup hosts South Africa, scoring a goal in their 2-1 victory over a dismal France side.
Harry Redknapp has signed Khumalo on a four and a half year contract for a fee in the region of £1.5 million. Khumalo had been relatively successful back in home country South Africa for club level as he had won three consecutive titles for SuperSport United but the 23 year old is yearning for more triumph as he has now joined one of the top clubs in England.
Khumalo could be seen as the defensive antidote for Harry’s side as Ledley King, Johnathan Woodgate and William Gallas all currently hog the Spurs physio room. Khumalo is likely to feature tomorrow as Tottenham take on former Premier league rivals Charlton, a bout which should be easy pickings for Redknapp’s men.
