The former AmaZulu, SuperSport United, Maritzburg United and Free State Stars centre back has joined the club on a permanent deal.

“Playing under head coach Muhsin Ertugral will be a great experience for me and I’ve already learnt a lot in the short time since I arrived at the club. We have to work harder than ever to make sure that we bounce back into the Premiership at the first attempt.

“The club comes first. All I can do now is to go out there and deliver for the club.”
