Cape Town - Zimbabwean goalkeeper Washington Arubi is eager to prove his worth after he was released by University of Pretoria following the expiry of his contract.

Arubi was the first choice goalkeeper for AmaTuks for much of their four seasons in the Premiership before falling out of favour in the middle of last season.

Tuks were relegated to the National First Division after Highlands Park won the promotion/relegation playoffs. The 30 year-old says he was weighing his options after a number of Premiership clubs showed interest in him.

"For now that is what I am doing, I'm just waiting for my agent to tell me what is up. There are some options that are there so I'm just waiting to hear from him," Arubi told Soccer Laduma.

"You know goalkeepers, we mature through our age, so for now with the experience that I have I am sure I can play for more years in my career and I feel like the club I am going to play for with my experience, I will manage to give them something.

"It is not going to be like walking in the park, there will be good competition. I am going to fight for my jersey, I am one of the top goalkeepers in my national team so I have to keep on pushing."
