Former Mamelodi Sundowns winger Toni Silva has reportedly signed for the 13th club of his career.

The 27-year-old, who made just 11 appearances for Masandawana in the 2018/19 campaign and left after just six months, was expected to have a blossoming career when he joined Liverpool at the age of 15 after spending time in Benfica and Chelsea's youth set-ups.

However, the Guinea-Bissau international failed to live up to expectations, and recently became a free agent once again.

According to Kazakh publication Vesti, Silva is now set to join Tobol, who are the bitter rivals of his latest club Taraz, for whom he scored four goals and assisted four strikes in 17 appearances before they opted not to renew his contract.

Many South African football fans will remember the winger for his scathing attack on former Downs boss Pitso Mosimane, calling him "the weakest coach" in a statement following his departure from Masandawana.

The journeyman has represented Liverpool's U23 side, Northampton, Barnsley, Dagenham & Redbridge, CSKA Sofia, Sanliurfaspor, Uniao Madeira, APO Levadiakos, Sundowns, El Ittihad, Astra Giurgiu and Taraz at senior level so far.
