Transfer Update: Cape Town City Looking To Sign Defender!

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 17, 2017 01:50 PM

Cape Town City could be considering adding another defender to their books for the new 2017/18 season, should the 25-year-old continue to impress Head Coach Benni McCarthy and his technical team.

Former Milano United centre back, Taariq Fielies is currently on trial with the Cape Town-based club, where he is being assessed by McCarthy and his technical team.

A Siya source has since indicated that a possible deal for the 25-year-old could be on the cards for the player after the club’s head coach and technical team have been fairly impressed with the 25-year-old’s progress.

If all goes well, the player could be set to put pen to paper on a professional contract with the 2016 Telkom Knockout champions, joining the likes of Tshepo Gumede, Robyn Johannes and Joao ‘Jeitoso’ Mussica in the centre back position.

City made four new signings thus far ahead of the 2017/18 season, with Jeitoso, Lyle Lakay, Ayanda Patosi and Teko Modise all being added to bolster Head Coach McCarthy’s squad.

Now, it remains to be seen whether the club will make an official announcement about Fielies in the coming weeks.
