Cape Town - Highlands Park midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane believes Musa Nyatama will prove to be a fine signing for the club.

The Lions of the North captured Nyatama from Pirates on transfer deadline day. And the Buccaneers 2017/18 Player of the Season has received the praises of 'Yeye'.

"I see him as a good acquisition for the club, a person that will help the team to get to another level and contribute to the club," Letsholonyane told KickOff.

"It does help [having experienced players]. Look, Highlands Park is a... not small team obviously in terms of history, it has been there for long time. But obviously in terms of playing and staying in the PSL it hasn't been that long you see.

"So there's lot of youngsters who are willing to work hard and learn, which obviously needs a balance between the youngsters and the experience that we are.

"We all know that he is a good player. He is a good person obviously, and from what we've seen previously in all the years he has been playing in different teams, he contributed immensely.

"He is a good ball player, he's a good reader of the game, so I think it's a good acquisition for Highlands Park. He's an experienced campaigner that will rub off on other players at Highlands Park.

"So I think for me, it's one good acquisition for the club that will help basically to take the club or the team to another level."
