Ajax Cape Town have announced the signing of SuperSport United forward Fagrie Lakay on loan for the remainder of the season.
“Ajax Cape Town are delighted to announce the signing of Fagrie Lakay,” read a statement on the club’s website.
“The 20-year-old has officially joined the Urban Warriors on loan from fellow Absa Premiership club SuperSport United for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.”
As reported earlier by KickOff.com, Ajax had been keeping close tabs on the young striker, who has finally put pen to paper with the Urban Warriors.
The 20-year-old, who has just made one domestic cup appearance for SuperSport all season, is well-known for becoming the youngest ever Bafana Bafana player when he was introduced into a game against Ivory Coast aged 17 years, 5 months and 30 days.
Lakay becomes Ajax’s fourth acquisition of the transfer window following the arrivals of Muzi Thabotha, Tendai Ndoro and Gerald Takwara.
Ajax kick-off 2018 with a clash against Maritzburg United on Friday evening at Cape Town Stadium.
