Cape Town - Cape Town City have signed Zimbabwean international goalkeeper, Tatenda Mkuruva from Dynamos FC in the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League.

Mkuruva is a Zimbabwean international, who was the national team's first-choice goalkeeper during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations held in Gabon. The 'keeper has made 13 appearances for The Warriors.

The 20-year-old shot stopper will add competition in the Cape side's goalkeeping department that already includes Shu-Aib Walters, Samora Motloung and Gershin Kock.

City officially announced the signing of Mkuruva on Twitter adding that it had captured the player on a three-year deal.

The Citizens previously signed four new players in the January transfer window with Edmilson Dove, Letsie Koapeng, Siyabonga Dubula and Luyolo Nomandela strengthening the squad.

Dove and Koapeng made their debuts in a 3-0 victory over Highlands Park at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday night with coach Eric Tinkler praising their contributions in the victory.

Cape Town City next face Ajax Cape Town in a Cape derby at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night with the two teams experiencing varied fortunes going into the encounter.
