Former Downs starlet pens deal with Polokwane City

Former Mamelodi Sundowns MultiChoice Diski side starlet Brian Shoba has reportedly penned a one-year deal to pay for Polokwane City.

Shoba, who never managed to break through into the first team ranks under coach Pitso Mosimane, played a starring role for Sundowns' MDC outfit but left the club at the end of 2017/18.

In addition, the player shone for Tshwane University of Technology in the Varsity Football tournament, as TUT went all the way to the final before dispatching Wits University 2-1.

The centre-back's two representatives, Godfrey Mushanganyisi and Mzwakhe Hlongwane, revealed to Soccer Laduma that the rising young talent had signed a deal with Rise and Shine last week, and would play for City in the 2018/19 campaign.

A statement to the publication read: "We have submitted his clearance to his new employers. He signed. I forwarded the clearance on Wednesday."
