Cape Town City have officially announced the signing of Ayanda Patosi from Belgian club SC Lokeren. 

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder began his career in the Mother City with ASD Cape Town in 2010, before catching the eye of Lokeren scouts. 

He spent his entire professional career at the Belgian outfit, and despite the challenges he faced over the years, he remained at the club and fought for his place. 

However, Patosi saw the need to return to South Africa in an attempt to revive his career. 

City, who finished third on the PSL log this past season, took to social media to confirm the signing of Patosi on Thursday morning. 

Patosi lost his place in the Bafana Bafana squad as a result of not playing regular football in Belgium. 

He joins a long list of South African footballers, who recently returned home from Europe.

Ngcongca was snapped up by Mamelodi Sundowns, while Keet returned to Bidvest Wits.
