Cape Town - Cape Town City aren't wasting time during the off season in bulking up their squad as they announced the signing of Ayanda Patosi from Belgium club KSC Lokeren on Thursday.

The Citizens are set to represent South Africa in next year's edition of the CAF Confederations Cup after a third place finish in the PSL.

Eric Tinkler's charges surprised the football fraternity after they nearly claimed "double" success this past season after winning the Telkom Knockout in December, while just falling short in the Absa Premiership title race.

The addition of Patosi signals City's mission of being an even bigger threat next season as he joins an already lethal attack which consists of Lebogang Manyama, Bhongolwethu Jayiya and Aubrey Ngoma.

"Cape Town City FC is proud to announce the signing of 24-year-old playmaker Ayanda Patosi from Belgian Pro League side KSC Lokeren," said the club in a statement released.

"Patosi hails from the heart of Khayelitsha, although he has spent the last 7 years plying his trade in Europe with Lokeren.

"Ayanda made his South African national team debut in 2013 and looks forward to cementing his place in the Bafana setup with CTCFC.

"This acquisition adds further attacking prowess to the lethal CTCFC side that won the 2016/17 TKO Trophy.

"CTCFC family, please join us in welcoming our very own - Ayanda Patosi!"
