Kaizer Chiefs have announced the signing of Bafana Bafana midfielder Yusuf Maart from Sekhukhune United.

Maart, once on the books of Orlando Pirates, has enjoyed a remarkable two year spell in the colours of Sekhukhune United.

"Kaizer Chiefs have signed Yusuf Moegamat Maart on a three-year deal with a two-year option. The midfielder’s club performances have earned him nine national team call-ups between 2021 and 2022, and he is now a regular in the Bafana Bafana set-up. Maart will join the team for preseason training this week," the club revealed.

The 26-year-old central midfielder has impressed for the national team since being called into Bafana Bafana by coach Hugo Broos last year.

Chiefs are in a huge rebuilding effort after 2021-22 was their seventh season without silverware.

They announced two more players who were released on Monday — defenders Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya.

Chiefs announced the signings of Dillan Solomons, Kamohelo Mahlatsi and Lehlogonolo Matlou from Swallows and Siyethemba Sithebe from AmaZulu on Monday. Mduduzi Shabalala was promoted from Chiefs’ DStv Diski Challenge team.
