The club then brought in Venezuela’s Darwin Gonzalez and have now also announced the signing of Mogamat May.

Mogamat May is a 23-year-old forward who signed from South African Breweries (SAB) League side, Hanover Park FC, KickOff reported.

The SAB League is the third division of South African football. May has scored 22 goals for Hanover Park in just this season according to iDiski Times.

Cape Town City FC will be hoping that Mogamat May brings his goalscoring prowess to the Premier Soccer League as well as the club finds itself midtable. Cape Town City FC is currently ninth, winning only five games from the 15 they've played.

In a special video posted to Cape Town City FC’s Instagram page, May spoke about the challenges of growing up in Hanover Park but how the love of football was evident among the community.

Before moving to Hanover Park, May once played for Ajax Cape Town. Ajax Cape Town no longer exists after Ajax Amsterdam cut ties with the South African side. The club officially changed its name to Cape Town Spurs after the split.

South Africa's Fagrie Lakay joins Egypt's Pyramid FC, Cape Town City sign Darwin Gonzalez as a replacement

Cape Town City’s Fagrie Lakay is heading off to Egypt to play for Pyramid FC. The Egyptian club and Cape Town City finalised the deal on deadline day after a week of negotiations, Sports Brief reported.

Fagrie will become the second South African in Egypt after Percy Tau joined Pitso Mosimane at Al Ahly. Pyramids FC is a title rival to Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly so Lakay will play against his fellow countrymen at some stage.

Cape Town City FC took to their Twitter to confirm the deal that will see Lakay head off to Egypt but also to announce their new signing, Darwin Gonzalez from Venezuela. Gonzalez, who plays as a forward, joins from Venezuelan Primera División side Deportivo La Guaira, where he scored 23 goals in 77 appearances.
