Maritzburg United have confirmed the signing of former Bidvest Wits defender Nazeer Allie.
Allie linked up with the Team of Choice following the expiry of his contract at The Clever Boys last month, and has since earned himself a two-year deal.
The 33-year-old managed to impress coach Fadlu Davids during an assessment, and becomes the club's fifth signing ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. The other recruits are: Keagan Buchanan, Denwin Farmer, Sizwe Muthwa and Tholang Masegela.
Allie helped Wits to MTN8 and Telkom Knockout glory, as well as a historic maiden Absa Premiership title during his three years in Milpark, but endured a turbulent final season hampered by injury as he made just 15 appearances.
The former Ajax Cape Town defender, who can play as both a centre-back and right-back, effectively comes in as a replacement for Bevan Fransman, who has joined Absa Premiership returnees Highlands Park.
Maritzburg are also believed to still be assessing former Ajax winger Justin Jacobus and Swaziland international Justice Figuareido.
