Super Eagles winger Ejike Uzoenyi has joined South African outfit Ajax Cape Town from rival Premier Soccer League club Bidvest Wits.
Uzoenyi has been in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) since 2014 when he joined Mamelodi Sundowns after six seasons at Nigeria Professional Football League side Enugu Rangers.
After three seasons at Sundowns, Uzoenyi signed with Bidvest Wits on 15 February 2017. He has now joined Ajax Cape Town till 2021.
The star of the 2014 African Nations Cup (CHAN) tournament hosted in South Africa, Uzoenyi was also part of the Super Eagles team that qualified for the FIFA World Cup hosted in Brazil that same year.
He struggled for game time at both Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits, with who he won the Absa Premiership title last season, due to injury and will be hoping that a return to the Mother City will ignite something special.
