Babina Noko has been on a remarkable signing spree this transfer window as they prepare for what looks to be their busiest season since promotion to the top flight.
Following a successful season in 2022/23, in which they reached the Nedbank Cup final and qualified for the CAF Confederations Cup, the Limpopo-based club is now set to compete in a number of prestigious competitions. Sekhukhune will compete in the MTN8, Nedbank Cup, Carling Black Label Knockout, and CAF Confederations Cup in addition to the DStv Premiership.
Brandon Truter’s charges have secured an agreement to sign the highly sought-after midfielder, Siphesihle Mkhize, in their pursuit of excellence across all competitions.

However, following lengthy discussions with the club about Mkhize’s future, an agreement was reached to find a club where he could settle and receive regular playing time.
Consideration of the club’s ambitions was an important factor in selecting the ideal club for Mkhize. The prospect of competing in the CAF Confederations Cup piqued the midfielder’s interest, as playing at such a high level aligns with his goals, especially with the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) looming.
Mkhize dreams of representing Bafana Bafana, and the opportunity to showcase his skills in a prestigious continental competition will undoubtedly bolster his chances.

With Sekhukhune United, Mkhize will have the platform to shine and contribute significantly to the team’s quest for success in the upcoming season.
As the anticipation builds for the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season, all eyes will be on Sekhukhune United and their new acquisition, Siphesihle Mkhize, to see how they fare in their pursuit of glory in various competitions. Fans can expect a thrilling and competitive display of football from the club as they embark on this exciting journe
