South Africa Sensation Quits Egyptian Football for Cape Town City
Cape Town City have acquired the services of 19-year-old South African international Gift Links for a reported record fee.
PSL side Cape Town City have acquired the services of 19-year-old South African international Gift Links for a reported record fee.
The Club announced the capture of the left winger on their official twitter account.
“Cape Town City is delighted to announce the acquisition of 19 year old South African international, Gift Links! The attacking midfielder signs a 5 year deal, joining City for a club record fee from Egyptian Premier League outfit Pyramids FC.”
The 19-year-old winger’s exit from Pyramids Football Club was prompted by a takeover by Saudi Arabia Sport Authority chairman Turk Al-Sheikh, who has big plans for the side and has already invested millions of dollars on new players.
Links made 11 appearances in the second half of the Egyptian league season after his move from now relegated Platinum Stars, attracting interest from other clubs in Egypt‚ before deciding to return to South Africa.
The 19 -year-old made his PSL debut in February 2017 for Stars against Baroka FC but made just eight appearances in the South African league.
The teenager earned his cameo call-up for Bafana in the recent Cosafa Cup in Polokwane‚ impressing in the wins over Namibia (4-1) and Botswana (3-0).
