Bloemfontein Celtic defender Auguston Leonard has joined Milano United on a short-term contract until end of the season.
Leonard has not featured regularly under Ernst Middendorp and the move has been made due to the player wanting to get more game-time.
“The coaching staff had an honest discussion with me whereby they told me that I wouldn’t be playing regularly for the remainder of the current season,” Leonard says.
“Due to the fact that my contract expires in July I knew that I needed to get as much game-time as possible in order to secure a new PSL contract elsewhere next season.
“My agent and I discussed a few opportunities where interest lay but due to my relationship with Milano and the guarantee of regular game-time, I decided to join them until the end of the season and help in their push for promotion.
“I had a wonderful two years in Bloemfontein and want to thank Mich d’Avray and Clinton Larsen for the opportunities they gave me.”
