Cape Town - Cape Town City have announced another shock signing in the form of Nigeria international striker Victor Obinna on a free transfer.

Obinna, 30, reunites with manager Benni McCarthy in Cape Town after previously sharing a dressing room as teammates with English Premier League side West Ham United in the 2010/11 season.

With 48 senior national team caps and playing for the likes of Chievo Verona, Internazionale, Málaga and Lokomotiv Moscow - Obinna brings a wealth of experience to the ambitious Premiership side.

"Cape Town City FC is excited to announce the signing of former Inter and West Ham Utd striker Victor Obinna," the club revealed on their official Twitter account.

The former SV Darmstadt forward will now compete with Lehlohonolo Majoro, Judas Moseamedi, Letsie Koapeng and youngster Nana Akosah-Bempah for a spot in the first XI.
