Rakhale was previously linked with several top clubs, including Kaizer Chiefs, who are unable to sign any new players due to a transfer ban imposed on them by Fifa.
He will provide a much-needed injection of experience to his new side, having played over 150 senior matches across competitions.
The bulk of his appearances came during his four-year spell at Orlando Pirates, where he played 86 times, netting four goals.
At Chippa, he had slightly better returns in front of goal, scoring five times and providing ten assists in 68 games.
After months in the wilderness, the player’s agent confirmed that he had found a new club.
“Rakhale is 99% done with joining his new team. But I can’t reveal much because they said when the time is right, they want to make their announcement,” the player’s agent, Mandla Mthembu told Sowetan earlier in the week.
“I don’t want to ruin things for them because of their reasons they told me. My comment, I will say, is 99% done. That’s all I can say. Rakhale will be unveiled by his new team whenever they are ready. Let me put it that way.”
TTM have recorded two draws and a defeat in their first three games in the top flight, and currently occupy 13th place in the standings.
