Cape Town - Newly-promoted Stellenbosch FC is looking to add experience to their ranks by signing striker Waseem Isaacs from Ubuntu FC.

Isaacs is well-known to Stellies, having played against them several times in the National First Division.

The 28-year-old finished second in the scoring charts behind Stellenbosch's own Iqraam Rayners and head coach Steve Barker believes the pair will strike up a lethal partnership in the Premiership.

"He is a good player and someone that gives us another option with his aerial ability," Barker told KickOff.

"He is a different type of player to what we have and he can combine well with the likes of Iqraam."

According to reports, this isn't the first time Barker has tried to sign Isaacs. Apparently, he tried to bring him to the University of Pretoria when he was in charge there, so is clearly a big fan of the forward.
