Cape Town - Former Baroka FC captain Mduduzi Mdantsane has explained his decision to sign with Cape Town City despite being heavily linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs.

Mdantsane was released from his contract by Bakgakga earlier this month with various reports suggesting he would sign with Amakhosi.

The 25-year-old Mdantsane, however, explained that the Chiefs link was just a rumour as they never made him an official offer.

The midfielder then also went into detail about his deal with the Citizens.

Mdantsane told Kickoff: "They (CT City) saw a chance and they utilised it. It's a three-and-a-half-year deal.

"It's a great team and they showed an interest you know, unlike the others - it was all rumours.

"I don't know anything about (Kaizer) Chiefs, it was just rumours.

"It was just all talk, no action; no calls so; no one phoned me; it was only Cape Town City who called, and we reached an agreement.

"I just want to play football, it doesn't matter what's happening, as long as I'm playing football. I got an opportunity, so I just had to grab it."

Mdantsane could make his debut for his new club when they take on his former side on Sunday, January 5.
