Ajax Cape Town have signed two new players, in Ritus Krjauklis and Anssi Jaakkola, as head coach Muhsin Ertugral strengthens his team for the season.
Soccer-Laduma predicted that the two players would be signed by the Ikamva-based outfit, with the club having now confirmed the two deals. The Siya crew has received confirmation that the players' deals have been completed.
Krjauklis was on Golden Arrows' books last season, with the Latvian having joined the KZN side last season, under Ertugral during his time with Abafana Bes’thende.
Krjauklis is expected to boost the team’s defence that has been somewhat depleted since the departure of Matthew Booth to Wits.
The 27-year-old made 15 starts for Arrows in the 2012/13 season and is now waiting for his work permit before he can turn out for Ajax.
Jaakkola is a Finnish goalkeeper who is coming to the PSL for the first time in his career. He played for Kilmarnock FC in Scotland before his move to Ajax.
The shot-stopper is expected to join his new teammates next week and get his PSL career underway.
