Barely a week since parting ways with South African former premier league side Black Leopards, Lesotho International Tumelo Khutlang has landed in the books of top flight league side Swallows on a two-year deal with an option of renewal. 

Khutlang was released by the Limpopo-based Black Leopards last week after a series of meetings with the management of the team over the past weeks. 

Makhopo, as the goal-poacher is affectionately known, said after lengthy discussions, the two parties finally came to an agreement that partying ways would be to the benefit of both the player and the club. However, he said that saying goodbye to the club was not an easy thing but now he looks ahead to the future. 

“I enjoyed my stay at Black Leopards and it was the best time of my career with some ups and downs here and there but now it is over and I look forward to the future with Swallows and hopefully stay much longer there,” Khutlang said.

The 25-year-old Teyateyaneng-born forward joined Lidoda duvha in July 2018, where he featured in 35 games scoring three goals and assisting in the conversion of three more.

Before joining the Limpopo based outfit Khutlang had spent three seasons with Lioli FC where he attracted the attention of a number of South African premier league sides such as Chippa United and Bloemfontein Celtic, but it was Leopards who at the secured his services for the next three seasons.
