Stellenbosch begin transfer business

Premiership has been informed that Stellenbosch will bolster their squad for life in the Absa Premiership.

Stellies are in the process of acquiring the services of experienced striker Waseem Isaacs, who spent the last two seasons on the books of now relegated Ubuntu FC.

Isaacs finished the National First Division as the second highest goal scorer with 13 goals, six behind Stellies striker Iqraam Rayners. The two players could strike up a lethal partnership upfront.

Isaacs, a former FC Cape Town and Vasco da Gama striker, has also spent two seasons in Slovakia on the books of MFK Zemklin a few years ago and is set to make his debut in the PSL when the deal is concluded in about a week.

It is believed that Stellies coach Steve Barker is a big admirer of Isaacs and wanted to lure him to University of Pretoria a few seasons ago while he was at the helm of AmaTuks.

This deal never materialised, but it looks like Barker will finally has his man.

Barker is confident Isaacs will add value to his side’s already potent attack.

“He is a good player and someone that gives us another options with his aerial ability,” Barker told

“He is a different type player to what we have and he can combine well with the likes of Iqraam.”
