According to the Ajax Cape Town website, Stanton Lewis has secured a transfer to Kaizer Chiefs as the player seeks to re-ignite his career closer to home.
Lewis spent his early years at Orlando Pirates and Wits University before joining the Ajax Youth Development Academy in 2002 at the age of fifteen. He made his PSL debut for the senior Ajax side in 2005 before moving to Ajax Amsterdam in 2006.
He returned to the Urban Warriors in January 2009 on a loan deal that was made permanent in 2010. Lewis went on trial with Swedish club Djurgården in July 2010.
Shooz Mekuto, the Ajax PRO said, “The player needs game time and the move to Chiefs is just the tonic to get Lewis onto the field. He is a quality player and we wish him well in his move to Chiefs.”
Lewis said, “It’s a great opportunity for me, moving to Johannesburg also gets me closer to my family and that is an added bonus.”
Earlier during the week the Kaizer Chiefs head coach Vladmir Vermezovic ruled out signing any players and this was probably their strategy to keep away any competitors for their targets.
