The Citizens continue to bolster their squad as they look to mount a PSL and Nedbank Cup challenge

Only days after announcing the capture of former Ajax Cape Town captain Travis Graham, Cape Town City have confirmed yet another signing.

Despite the transfer window being closed, City are raiding the free agent market as they look to challenge for Premier Soccer League (PSL) and Nedbank Cup honours.

This has seen them look to a former English Premier League player in Dutchman Chris David.

The 25-year-old has featured for clubs such as Fulham in England as well as Go Ahead Eagles, FC Utrecht and FC Twente in his homeland.

David has also represented the Netherlands at junior level, and Citizens coach Benni McCarthy will hope that the Dutch winger can add some additional bite to his attack especially after Ayanda Patosi recently left the club.

According to the club who announced David’s acquisition on Sunday morning, the midfielder has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal at the club.

Nonetheless, expectations will be high of the Amsterdam-born player as City continue to push the limits and challenge the South African status quo.

McCarthy’s men currently find themselves in fourth position on the league table after overcoming Maritzburg United 3-2 on Saturday.

This has put City just five points behind log leader Bidvest Wits and has them firmly in a spot to challenge for domestic honours.

City are also still alive and kicking in the Nedbank Cup and with the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United out of the competition, the Cape Town-based outfit may fancy their chances now more than ever of winning another piece of silverware this season.
