Belgian second-tier side KSV Roeselare have signed Mamelodi Sundowns right-back Anele Ngcongca on a two-year contract, the club confirmed on Monday.
Ngcongca, who previously spent nine years at Belgian top-flight side Genk, where he won the league, had been expected to extend his stay with The Brazilians, but appears to have opted for a return to Europe.
“Today Calvin Anele Ngcongca signed a two-season contract, plus option on an additional campaign at Schiervelde,” Roeselare announced on the club’s website.
“The defender, who can handle several positions, comes from Mamelodi Sundowns FC, with which he was active last season in, among other things, the quarterfinals of the Caf Champions League.”
“Anele is no unknown face in Belgian football. Between 2007 and 2015 he played at Racing Genk. In eight seasons, Anele reeled no less than 279 games for the Limburgers, including a number against KSV Roeselare.
“During his time with Genk, he became champion once and twice won the Belgian Cup.”
Anele Ngcongca could not be reached for comment, while Sundowns have yet to confirm the deal.
