Cape Town - SuperSport United have confirmed the signing of Zimbabwean international striker Evans Rusike from Maritzburg United with immediate effect.

Rusike penned a three-year deal with the Pretoria giants after successful spell at The Team of Choice.

The 27-year-old forward has netted over 20 goals during his two-and-a-half-year stay at the KwaZulu-Natal club and recently, represented his national team in the 2017 CHAN tournament.

"We have been watching Evans with great interest over the last few years at Maritzburg," SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews said.

"He has all the makings of a great striker with blistering pace, great skill and he can finish in the box.

"We are thrilled to announce his signing and look forward to him making a meaningful contribution for us over the next few years."

Rusike reveals that he hopes the transfer will be a stepping stone for a potential move to play in Europe one day.

"SuperSport is a great club. They have achieved a lot in their short history, especially in the Cups," said Rusike.

"They have also shown that they can get players to Europe and it remains my dream to play in Europe.

"I know I have to prove myself to the coach and management of SuperSport and I will give my best to boost the team into the Top 8 this season."

Rusike is currently the third highest Absa Premiership goal scorer with seven goals so far this season.
