Milano United have scooped up the services of former Jomo Cosmos goalkeeper Sherwyn Naicker on a one-year deal plus the option to renew for another season.
Milano's media officer Sean Ferrier confirms the news and adds that they are also in the process of finalising a deal with the former Polokwane City and SuperSport United defender Gert Barends.
“We knew we had to fill the void left by Lee Langeveldt [after he joined Golden Arrows] who did extremely well for us,” Ferrier tells KickOff.com.
“We only conceded 23 goals in 32 matches last season of which 15 were dubious penalties to say the least.
“Sherwin, having previously been a member of our club and considering his recent accolades, it therefore just fits the description perfectly.
“We are delighted to have him back.”
With regards to Barends' deal, Ferrier adds: “We're just tying up a few loose ends but everything should be concluded by no later than Monday.”
Ferrier says the Kinnes from Grassy Park have also acquired the services of Jason Dickson on a one-year deal with the option to renew for two additional years.
“Jason has long been on our wanted-list. He is a young player with a driving, fighting ambition. He wants to succeed and is versatile, a typical Milano-type player,” Ferrier concludes.
