The 28-year-old arrived at Ikamva this morning to begin a new tenure with the Urban Warriors after weeks of uncertainty as he was also part of the deal that saw Khama Billiat move to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Despite finally sealing a loan move to the Cape Outfit, Rodgers was also linked with a move to Bidvest Wits.

“I didn’t mind coming down here to play for Ajax or remaining in Gauteng with Wits.”

“It’s just I had to relocate again after I had settled in well in Gauteng.”

Rodgers last turned out for Santos before eventually leaving for Sundowns, he says he hopes to receive the backing of Ajax’s cross-town rival’s fans, Santos, despite the change in colours.

“Hopefully they will continue to support me, but right now I’m focused on football.

“I’m looking forward finding my feet again. I want to settle in the team well, gel with the players and find my goal scoring form once again.”
