Cape Town - Bidvest Wits striker Eleazar Rodgers is eager to begin a new chapter in his career with the Premiership club next season.

Rodgers penned a pre-contract agreement earlier in the year with the Clever Boys after spending three seasons at Platinum Stars.

The 31-year-old admits it was a difficult decision to leave Dikwena after making a new home for himself in the North-West.

"I am excited for the new challenge, there is a lot of things to look forward to," he told Goal website.

"I have been in Jo'burg before so there is not much new to expect from that, but the team is very ambitious, they want to win things and they are very competitive. I am very excited and hopefully I can contribute to the team's success.

"I think definitely they will try and use me as a number nine. I think that is what I am best at in terms of playing, not like I can't play anywhere else, but I think that is my strength and I think that is probably why they want me to join them.

"The team itself plays really well with wingers and crosses coming in so it is going to be a good opportunity for me. Hopefully I can settle in quickly and deliver the goods."
