Cape Town - Cape Town City chairman John Comitis is confident new signing Gift Links will set the Absa Premiership alight following his arrival from Egyptian side Pyramid FC.
Comitis says the 19-year-old was brought on board to fill the void left by Lyle Lakay's departure to Mamelodi Sundowns.
He is confident that Links and Riyaad Norodien, who has joined from Orlando Pirates, will improve the club's attacking options in the new season.
The teenager came through the youth ranks at Platinum Stars and was also part of the Bafana Bafana squad at the recent COSAFA Cup.
"We were obviously concerned that Lyle may make a move and we acted very quickly when we saw the opportunity with Gift," Comitis told the SABC.
"I think that gave us the confidence to move forward with Lakay. He did extremely well for us. But I'm really excited with Gift.
"His age is 19 and what he is producing at training at the moment is really exciting. To play 18 starts in Egypt is quite an achievement for a young kid.
"That added with Norodien, I think our last-third department is going to be improved."
