Moroka Swallows have announced the signing of midfielder Andile Jali who reunites with coach Steve Komphela. Jali joins on a two-year contract after leaving Mamelodi Sundowns before the end of last season.

The 33-year-old was linked to a move to a few DStv Premiership clubs including Moroccan outfit Wydad Casablanca. This is until he was announced as a Moroka Swallows player on Friday evening.

The Dube Birds chairman David Mogashoa confirmed live on Gagasi FM that Jali signed with Swallows.

“It’s a two-year contract, I think we will go longer than that,” Mogashoa stated.

Jali will reunite with his former coach Steve Komphela who joined the Dube Birds a week ago. Matatiele-born struggled with game time under Rulani Mokwena after making 15 appearances in all competitions for Sundowns last season.

However, he won all the domestic trophies with the Tshwane giants since he joined them in 2018 and captained Sundowns in some matches.

Jali is the fifth player that signed with Swallows after the arrival of Lantshene Phalane, Victor Bakah, Tshanini Falakhe and Keenan Phillips. And, he’ll wear his favourite jersey number fifteen.
