Cape Town - Polokwane City have bolstered the club's striking department by signing Malawian forward Muhammed Sulumba after a successful trial period. 

The 23-year-old had been training with Rise and Shine since December with the hope of landing a deal, and he has now put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year contract.   

Previously the powerful Sulumba had been on the books of Malawi Premier Division outfit, Big Bullets, and also had a spell at Jomo Cosmos. The hit-man joins the likes of Rodney Ramagalela and Rendani Ndou in the attack for the Bernard Molekwa-coached outfit.

A source confirmed the deal saying to Soccer Laduma"He belongs to Rise and Shine. We have made a very exciting signing to add to our fantastic attack force. He will be announced as a Polokwane City player soon."

Atusaye Nyondo, Gabadinho Mhango, Robert Ng’ambi, Limbikani Mzava and Robin Ngalande are other Malawians playing football in the Premiership and the player will no doubt also hope to have an impact as well.

Sulumba will be hoping to make his debut when Polokwane face Orlando Pirates in an Absa Premiership clash at the orlando Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
