Former Kaizer Chiefs star Hendrick Ekstein has joined a new club, Sabail FK. The 29-year-old will be playing alongside Premier League legend, Michael Essien.
Ekstein has been looking for a club since his abrupt departure from Sabah last month. He was rumoured to be returning to the PSL but instead opted to move back to Azerbaijan.
According to KickOff.com, the club initially made contact while the midfielder was still with the Glamour Boys. But due to contractual obligations, the player declined.
Ekstein has now signed a one-and-a-half-year deal with the club and will be wearing jersey number 27 for the duration of the season.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has revealed that he feels that one of his players is being targeted by opposition defenders. The coach thinks that Samir Nukovic is being treated roughly, especially in the recent clash with Black Leopards.
