Stellies snap up Mexican midfielder


Stellenbosch FC have announced the signing of Mexican midfielder Diego Franco from University of Pretoria.

Franco joined AmaTuks together with his countryman Lugiani Gallardo at the beginning of last season. Both players were linked to Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns late last year.

The 26-year-old also attracted interest from Bidvest Wits recently but Stellies have won the race for his signature.
