The Citizens have made it known that they mean business in retaining their players as Mozambican international Edmilson Dove has committed his future to the club.

Dove has penned a new four-year deal that will see him remain with the Cape-based side until 2022, following his arrival 18 months ago.

The 24-year-old left-back has been a regular feature in City's setup under coach Benni McCarthy, often rotating with Ebrahim Seedat as he managed 24 appearances in all competitions last season.

The club have sent a clear message that they intend building a formidable squad in order to challenge for silverware, after they also tied down centre-back Taariq Fielies on Wednesday.

With the PSL's 'big boys' circling the Mother City outfit in recent times – as evidenced by the likes of Aubrey Ngoma, Lyle Lakay and Robyn Johannes all moving to Gauteng – they are determined to avoid losing any influential personnel for free.
