Cape Town - New AmaZulu signing Asive Langwe says he is settling in well at the Durban club as he anticipates regular first-team action for the first time since his breakthrough season in 2010.

Langwe, still in his early twenties, has joined Usuthu on loan from Bidvest Wits until the end of the season.

He is one of five players that coach Steve Barker signed in the January transfer window to help save the team from relegation.

Usuthu are currently bottom of the Premiership standings with nine points from 16 games, although Langwe believes they can dig themselves out of trouble.

"It's going to be tough but I am not saying we cannot do it," Langwe said.

The likes of Bongi Ntuli, Mbulelo Mabizela, Roscoe Pietersen and Energy Murambadoro are among the new recruits at the club, giving further confidence to Langwe.

"The squad is beefed up and we are confident," he explained.

"We had a good mid-season camp. We played some great friendlies where we scored goals and kept clean sheets."

Langwe was amongst the goals in a warm-up match against Royal Leopards in Swaziland.

"For me the most important thing is to cement a place in the team," he added.

"I am flexible and play across the midfield. I just want to deliver."
