Confirmed: Singh Completes High-Profile Move

Danish giants FC Copenhagen have officially confirmed the signing of South African international, Luther Singh. 

As reported by the Siya crew, the 23-year-old sealed his switch from Portuguese outfit SC Braga for a fee reported to be in the region of  €1.5 million (±R25.6 million)

The club confirmed that Singh has signed a four-year contract, in a deal that runs until 2025. He will play in the number 7.

The Noordgesig-born star, who hails from the famed Stars of Africa Academy, has spent the last few seasons on loan with GD Chaves, Moreirense FC and most recently, FC Pacos de Ferreira - all in the Portuguese Primera Liga.

Now, having found a permanent home in the Danish Superliga, Singh will be hoping to follow in the legendary footsteps of Sibusiso Zuma, who etched himself into the club's history books during a five-year stint at the club.

“FCK has a fantastic reputation in Europe and not least in South Africa, where we all know the story of Zuma, but also Elrio Van Heerden, who did great here,” Singh told the club's official website.
 
“I have only heard good things about the club, and even though I had opportunities in Portugal, England and other leagues, F.C. Copenhagen is the right choice for me.
 
“I have been to Scandinavia before, so I know the mentality, the climate and the physical style of play that can sometimes characterise the matches. I approach this challenge humbly and know that it takes hard work to break through here, but I know that I will have skilled teammates and coaches around me, so I'm just looking forward to getting started,” he added.
