The Siya crew reported earlier this week that the Bafana Bafana international was in Portugal to complete his move in Setubal, with the club having been impressed by his short stint in Sweden with AFC Eskilstuna.

Erasmus, who recently turned 28, has penned a two-year deal at the top-flight outfit, and will now be chomping at the bit to make his debut in Portuguese football at some point this month.

Speaking to the club's official website about the move, he said, "I am very, very proud and happy to be able to represent Vitoria. I will do my best in every game to help the team win as many as possible.
 
“I know it's a fantastic league with great players and it will be a pleasure to play here.”
 
It was also revealed that the former Orlando Pirates man will don the same number 95 that he wore during his time with Bucs, and explained that it was Setubal's President, Vitor Hugo Valente, who eventually persuaded him that the club was the right one for him.
