PSL fans will see a familiar face in the English Premier League for the rest of the season, after former Ajax Cape Town star, Eyong Enoh, joined Fulham on loan.
Cameroon international Enoh joined Ajax Amsterdam from their South African feeder club in 2008.
He played for the Dutch champions under current Fulham boss Martin Jol, who took a shining to him.
The 26-year-old midfielder has found game time at Ajax hard to come by of late, and Jol was happy to snap his old charge up.
“Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the loan signing of Eyong Enoh until summer 2013, with an option to sign the player on a permanent deal,” the Cottagers confirmed on their website.
“Enoh has made 132 senior appearances for Ajax during his five-and-a-half years at the club, winning the Eredivisie title twice and the KNVB Cup once.
“A Cameroon international, capped 27 times and with two international goals, Enoh was named in the Indomitable Lions squad for both the 2010 FIFA World Cup and 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.
“He usually operates in a deep-lying midfield role, and featured for Martin Jol during his time as manager of Ajax in 2009/10.”
Enoh was one of the best players in the PSL when he secured his big move to Europe.
He quietly slipped away from Cape Town, but it will be interesting to see how another ex-PSL professional fairs in one of the most cut-throat domestic leagues in football.
