Cape Town - Newly-signed Cape Town City FC defender Joseph Adjei has revealed that his move from the Ghanaian Premier League to the Premiership is a big step-up for his career.

The Under-20 Ghana international signed from WA All Stars to the Mother City-based outfit earlier this month and has admitted that there was a number of teams interested in his services.

"I use to watch the PSL on TV back in Ghana so I know about it, it's very tough and I know I will have to do my best," he told KickOff.

"There were a lot of teams interested in taking me but I decided to come to Cape Town City. In life there is no need to rush things, so this will be a good learning experience for me."

The centre-back, who will compete with Vincent Kobola, Ricardo Ndiki, Robyn Johannes and Tshepo Gumede for a spot in Eric Tinkler's starting line-up, said he envisions himself one day playing in Europe, citing his move to City as a step towards that goal.

"Coming from Ghana to play in South Africa is just a step for me I hope. It is a step forward certainly, but I see my future in Europe. The PSL is a professional league," he added

"I've been here almost four weeks. I've settled in really well, I'm coping with the training and liking Cape Town so much. The players have been very friendly towards me.

"I'm a centre-back, that's my best position. I used to play as a holding midfielder but that was a long, long time ago," he concluded.
