Semenya confirmed her agreement to join women's football club JVW FC, a club owned by Banyana Banyana captain Janine van Wyk.

However, because this deal fell outside of the South African transfer window, she can only start playing competitively in 2020.

She will be training with the Johannesburg-based club for the time being.
