- DStv Premiership side Stellenbosch FC has announced the agreement between them and Swedish side Varbergs BoIS for Ryan Moon's services
- Formerly on the books of Kaizer Chiefs, the 24-year-old Moon has been thanked by the Cape Winelands side for his service
- On the other hand, Stellenbosch coach Steve Barker has also given his player all the blessings to follow his dream overseas
Stellenbosch FC striker Ryan Moon has completed his switch to Sweden's top-flight side Varbergs BoIS as the team bolsters its ranks for the upcoming 2021 campaign.
Local media reports suggest that the deal has been finalised and that the former Kaizer Chiefs hitman will leave the DStv Premiership with Dean Solomons.
It is reported by KickOff.com that the Pietermaritzburg-born striker will part ways with Stellies at the end of the current domestic season.
According to the club, the 24-year-old has always been dreaming of plying his trade overseas and they have wished him the best of luck.
It is also reported that the former Team of Choice and Amakhosi player is seen as a perfect replacement for Astrit Selmani who joined local rivals Hammarby in a reported R14-million move. Stellenbosch tweeted:
Having played in 13 games for coach Steve Barker's troops and netted a single strike so far, Moon will hope to establish himself in Europe and also catch the eye of the national team selectors.
The former AmaZulu coach has also wished the lanky forward the best of luck in his next step, saying he is pleased with the player's move:
"It is always pleasing to see players follow their dreams.
“Ryan has always wanted to apply his trade in Europe and we're happy for a player like that to go on and achieve what he has set out. We wish him all the best."
Meanwhile, the 22-year-old Solomons join the Swedish Allsvenskan outfit as a free agent after leaving Ajax at the end of the last term.
It is reported locally that the duo is believed to have signed three-year deals contracts with the ambitious Swedish club.
In other news, Briefly.co.za ran a story on outspoken former Chiefs player Junior Khanye who had asked the mid-fielder Siphelele Ntshangase to leave the Glamour Boys.
The retired midfielder spoke just before the club decided to terminate the former Black Leopards midfielder's contract and parted ways with him in March.
Khanye argued that Ntshangase is under too much pressure at Amakhosi and could do better at a club such as Chippa United, Lidoda Duvha, or even AmaZulu.
