Outgoing Bidvest Wits midfielder Sameehg Doutie has signed for Indian Super League (ISL) side Atletico de Kolkata.

Doutie spent the 2014/15 campaign on-loan at Wits from SuperSport United. Both, his loan deal and SuperSport contract were due to expire on the 30th of June 2015.

When speaking to Goal Doutie's agent Paul Mitchell, the managing director of Siyavuma Sports Group, confirmed the deal.

"We are delighted to announce that Sameehg Doutie has signed for Atletico Madrid's franchise team Atletico de Kolkata," Mitchell told Goal.

"Sameehg has been presented with a great opportunity to showcase his talent abroad. He really deserves this opportunity," he said.

The 2015 Hero ISL season is expected to begin in September and end in December. After that period the Spanish side will help him get a new club abroad.

"In January, Madrid will get to look at his opportunities abroad, and help him further his career abroad," Mitchell concluded.

The 26-year-old winger was nurtured in the Ajax Cape Town academy, before been promoted into their first team during the 2007/08 campaign.

He moved to Orlando Pirates in 2011, where the Cape Town-born player won the MTN8 Cup and Telkom KnockOut Cup trophies.

Doutie has also played for the South African under-23 and under-20 national teams.
