Soccer Laduma – TEHRAN, Ayanda Patosi has made his return to Cape Town City after his loan stint with Esteghlal FC in Iran came to an end.
Patosi completed a loan move form City to Esteghlal in January this year, with the club given the option to buy the player permanently.
However, according to Siya sources, despite Patosi’s influence on the club’s success last season, they have opted against signing the player permanently from City, due to financial reasons.
The 26-year-old had a remarkable six-months with the Iranian outfit, making 17 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and creating five assists in the past six months.
The midfielder is currently in South Africa and sources have indicated that Patosi has already met with City chairman, John Comitis regarding his immediate future.
