Cape Town - AmaZulu defensive midfielder Samuel Darpoh has extended his stay in Durban for a further three seasons, the club confirmed.
The agreement between the player and the club comes into effect from the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign.
The 21-year-old has played 13 times for the Cavin Johnson-coached side this season and appears to have impressed.
Speaking to the team's official website, the player expressed his delight at putting pen to paper.
He said: "I feel so happy and privileged for extending my contract
with the club that took care of me, a club that gave me a platform when I
first arrived in South Africa.
"It's with great honour and pleasure that I have committed my future to this club, and I am very happy with this opportunity.
"It's been a journey of hard work, coming from the youth structures
of AmaZulu, being promoted to the senior side. It's been a lot of hard
work and dedication.
"AmaZulu is a very professional club and a great club to be with. I
remember when I first played my first match for the club in the NFD. The
feeling was great, and I thank God.
"I think I've improved year by year when I look back from the
motivation I get from the coaches, management and teammates that
"I'm growing to becoming a better player. Hopefully with God's
favour, and lots of hard work I can become an asset to the club and even
my country one day."
AmaZulu are next in action on Saturday night when they face Chippa
United at the King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium in Durban.
