PSL giants Kaizer Chiefs have announced former SuperSport United defender Luke Fleurs as the latest new signing. Fleurs has been on trial with the club for some a while now and has reportedly impressed the management.
Recently departed coach Molefi Ntseki had also given an indication that the club was impressed with the 23-year-old. Amakhosi officially announced the signing of the player on Thursday afternoon.
The South African junior international has signed a two-year contract, with an option for a further season.
“We are very excited and happy to have Luke join us,” said Chiefs Sporting Director, Kaizer Motaung Jr.
“The young man has great technical abilities and I think he will fit really well into how we want to approach the game and the kind of football we would like to play going forward.
“Of course, being a youth international and having experienced the Olympics, as well as having many PSL games under his belt, we believe his attributes will benefit the team,” added Motaung Jr.

Fleurs couldn’t hide his delight after officially joining the glamour boys. “I feel so pleased to sign because I always wanted to be part of the Glamour Boys,” said Fleurs.
“There is a great bond here; it has that family feel. I just wanted to get started on the job of winning silverware. This is the biggest Club and I want to help us win things.”
“We have been training well and I am used to the setup,” he added.
“Results haven’t been going our way lately but we will turn it around through hard work because there is great talent here and we will get it right.”
The player is expected to be ready for selection, having spent time training with the club already. Motaung Jr. also says it’s a matter of time before the defender gets involved.
“We are looking to get everyone on board as soon as possible,” added Motaung Jr.
“We know that Luke is fit and raring to go, so we will leave it up to the technical staff to make that call, but we are hoping to see him playing for us soon.”
