Malawi national football team defender Limbikani Mzava has signed a three-year contract with another South Africa Premiers Soccer League outfit Mpumalanga Black Aces in a bid to have more game time.
The development comes barely days after Celtic confirmed parting way with the player despite that they still wanted to him stay.
Acess boss Mario Morfu officially confirmed on Tuesday that the Malawi defender is poised to start a new life at Black Aces having just made 18 appearances this campaign.
“Yes he has signed with us a contract. We will announce the other new players and those leaving in due course,” he told Kick-Off magazine website.
Aces who have players such as former Zambia prolific striker Collins Mbesuma, and Zimbabwean Tinashe Nengomashe finished on 10th position in the league.
Aces have also hired coach Muhsin Ertugral to replace sacked veteran Cliver Baker.
“With Mzava, we never wanted him to leave, but he had already made up his mind after starting the season mostly sitting on the bench,” Larsen said.
“It is painful to lose painful diligent players but against we really welcome their modest manner in accepting the decision taken. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
Mzava is rated highly and once attended trials in Israel at Macabi Haifa and Monaco of France.
The French Ligue One team did not sign arguing that he was short for a defender.
