Transfer Akpeyi secures work permit to play for South African club, Swallows FC. Daniel Akpeyi, a goalkeeper from Nigeria, has been given permission to work in South Africa and play for Swallows FC.
After departing another South African team, Kaizer Chiefs, in July 2022, Akpeyi has been without a team.

The seasoned goalie may make his debut against the Chilli Boys.
Swallows are in the relegation play-off slot in third-to-last place, level with Maritzburg United on 21 points.
