Lota moves to Swallows
Zambia's Dennis Lota
Lota signed a two-year deal
Former Zambian international Dennis Lota has joined South African First Division side Moroka Swallows.

Swallows director Gavin Bernstein said the striker, a member of Zambia's 1996 Nations Cup team, signed a two-year contract with the club.

Lota is not a new face in South African football, having played three seasons with Orlando Pirates since 1998.

He was top scorer in the South African league with 23 goals in the 1999/2000 season.

The 29-year-old striker is expected to partner Shaun Permall in the Swallows attack.

Lota was part of the new Zambian national team built after the 1993 Gabon air crash, which wiped out an entire generation of the country's finest footballers.

He retired from international football after playing his fourth Nations Cup finals in Mali last year.
