DStv Premiership side Cape Town City is believed to have snapped up Justin Shonga from Orlando Pirates.
Shonga, who made his name at Pirates three seasons ago as a dynamic forward with goals and assists that included long-range shot as well as free-kicks, lost his place at Pirates before his was loaned out to newcomers TTM this season.
According to leading transfer reporters FARpost, the 24-year-old Shonga has now moved to the exciting Cape Town City, subject to the club’s announcement.

Shonga is set to join up with City’s recently signed countryman Charles Zulu who has made a slow start of five appearances at the Citizens.
While certain hushed sources claimed Shonga left Pirates due to an ill-disciplined lifestyle that included regular partying, Cape Town is viewed as a laid back City with minimal distractions.
