Kaizer Chiefs have finally announced the signing of Lazarous Kambole from Zesco United FC.
This follows months of speculation with Chiefs supporters eagerly waiting in anticipation.
The signing comes with much hype, but how much do we really know about the Zambian striker.
Briefly.co.za understands that Kambole rose from humble beginnings and paid his dues in Zambian football.
He started off at Kabundi Young stars, but then moved and played for numerous other clubs as he honed his skills.
TimesLIVE reported that he represented Mulalo Academy as well, before his big move to Zesco United FC in 2014.
Kambole boasts an enviable strike rate at international level, with seven goals from his 15 matches.
He showcased his ability for Chiefs supporters in January after his goal knocked them out of the CAF Confederation Cup.
Kambole boasts one other impressive accolade - his hatrick for Zesco over Mbabane Swallows in five minutes remains the record for the fastest ever to three goals in the CAF Champions League.
The Amakhosi seem to building a formidable strike force once again as Kambole follows in the footsteps of forwards, Bernard Parker and Khama Billiat.
