Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Robyn Johannes is currently on trial at new Premiership outfit Cape Town City with hopes of winning a contract.

After graduating from the University of Pretoria academy, Johannes was considered as one of the finest defensive prospects in the country but after moves to the Brazilians and Orlando Pirates his career has taken something of a downward trajectory.

Stints at Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United and more recently AmaZulu failed to re-ignite his promising career and following his release from Usuthu in the National First Division, the 30-year-old is looking to move back to the Mother City.

Links with second-tier club FC Cape Town failed to materialise and now KickOff have reported that the utility defender, along with Lennox Bacela are both training with Eric Tinkler's side.

"Both players are here. Johannes started training with the team on Thursday," the publication revealed. "There are other foreign players also trying their luck."
