Polokwane - Polokwane City have acquired the services of former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Rodney Ramagalela on a two-year deal.

Ramagalela spent the 2015/16 season on loan at Lamontville Golden Arrows where he had a successful campaign and admits that moving closer to his home town will be a morale booster for him.

Last month, Sport24 reported that the former Black Leopards man was still uncertain about his future.

However, he has now confirmed that negotiations between City and his representatives went smoothly after having to wait for his loan spell with Arrows to elapse on 30 June.

Ramagalela says that he is looking forward to a healthy 2016/17 campaign and hopes he won't have to deal with any injuries as it was the case in the past.

“I have reached an agreement with Polokwane City and I ended up signing a two-year contract with them,” confirmed Ramagalela.

“So now I’m a Polokwane City player, this is where I want to be because it’s closer to my home and as everyone knows that I used to battle with injuries in the past, hopefully it’ll be better this coming season and I will be able to play better.

“The negotiations between my representatives and Polokwane City were going on for a while but at the time my loan contract with Arrows had not expired, so I couldn’t just go to the media and announce my next move.

“My contract with Sundowns expired on the 30th of June as well.’’
