The transfer took some time to complete after Fosa initially blocked the move claiming Andrianarimanana still had a contract with them.

Solinas expects the 27-year-old to be a busy presence in the Amakhosi engine room, which includes Siphelele Ntshangase, George Maluleka and Willard Katsande amongst others.

"Dax is a midfielder," Solinas said.

"He is a box-to-box midfielder. He plays the same position as Ntshangase.

"He plays the same position he plays in the national team.

"When the club scouted him [it was] because of his ability of playing as a box-to-box midfielder.

"He can play both defensively and offensively.

"We are waiting for his papers," confirmed the Italian.

Solinas joked he has a hard time pronouncing Dax's full name.

"I can't because it's a big name, it's a big surname. It's unbelievable.

"I said to him, I call you Adriana or Dax. Because if I [call] your name and surname the game will be finished."

The Glamour Boys, who drew 2-2 with SuperSport United in the first leg of their MTN8 semi-final on Sunday, next host joint-log leaders Bloemfontein Celtic at FNB Stadium on Wednesday.
