Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town have announced the signing of former Maritzburg United captain Ashley Hartog on a deal until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old midfielder has been on the lookout for a new club since being released by the Team of Choice during the January transfer window following the return of Ernst Middendorp to the helm.

Hartog was invited to train with the Urban Warriors a fortnight ago and he has earned a short-term contract at Ikamva after impressing coach Roger De Sa.

The Capetonian is excited by the prospect of passing on his knowledge and experience to a young squad and aiding their progress.

"It's been nice to train with these players for the two weeks before signing, seeing that I know most of the players here which made it very easy for me to fit in," Hartog told the club's official website.

"It's very exciting to actually sign a contract with Ajax Cape Town because I was here before and it didn't work out. To sign here at my age is a big thing for me.

"The team is doing great with so many young players, even the recent CAF trip to Angola had a lot of youngsters which is great to see. For a more experienced player to come in and settle in with them is also a great feeling."
