Ajax Cape Town’s Cameroonian midfielder Eyong Enoh says he is giving a good account of himself on trial at Israeli club Maccabi Haifa and is hopeful that he will secure an overseas move.
The 22-year-old player says he has adapted well to his surrounding and is impressed with his input at training and in some friendly matches that he has participated in.
“I have settled in quite well at the team. The training and friendly games I have played make me very positive,” he tells KickOff.com from Israel.
Enoh says having given it his best shot during the trial, the ball is now in the courts of the two clubs to conclude if a move is possible.
If a transfer comes through, the highly-rated player, who played in Cyprus before coming to South Africa, will join former Urban Warriors teammate Thembinkosi Terror Fanteni and Bafana defender Tsepo Masilela at the “Israeli Manchester United”.
“It is left for the club and Ajax to finalise terms. I will be back in Cape Town by midweek and remain there until all is finalised,” says Enoh.
The Kumba-born player played a significant part in Ajax’s impressive run that culminated in the young team challenge strongly for a maiden league triumph only to be denied by champions SuperSport United in the last game of the season.
Enoh won over the Urban Warriors fans and other neutrals with his commanding displays in the middle of the park and was a strong contender for individual Absa Premiership accolades.
