Cape Town - Cape Town City owner John Comitis said they had considered a few other players before deciding to sign Travis Graham on a free transfer.

The Citizens announced the signing of Graham on Thursday morning and the former Ajax Cape Town player is a welcome addition to the squad especially since Thabo Nodada and Roland Putsche had earlier in the week been ruled out for the rest of the season.

The 25-year-old Graham has not played any football since parting ways with the Urban Warriors at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

He will not be available for Cape Town City's next game, against Maritzburg United on Saturday, due to a lack of fitness but Comitis is hoping Graham will make his official debut in their next game against Sundowns on 27 February.

Comitis told KickOff website: "We, or rather Benni [McCarthy] immediately made the call to Travis.

"We also had one or two other options we considered but decided that Travis will be the one. He's a good kid and he's got good professional conditions.

"He's a bit short on match practice but will get two full days of training with the Diski team and he'll play in the side over the weekend as well.

"By then he should have settled in nicely and we're looking at unleashing him in our next game after Maritzburg, which is Mamelodi Sundowns."
