Haashim Domingo says the chance to play for a team with the style of Cape Town City was a major factor in him signing a three-year contract with coach Eric Tinkler’s side.

Domingo is the second signing of the transfer window for City after the arrival of Namibia left-winger Prins Tjiueza, who had been set to join in January but had his stay delayed by an ankle injury picked up at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Domingo comes from Raja Casablanca, where he was a league winner in their ‘Invincibles’ season under former Orlando Pirates coach Josep Zinnbauer and assistant Fadlu Davids, though he only made 10 appearances and two starts.

"The biggest factor for me in joining Cape Town City is the playing style and the identity of the club," former Ajax Cape Town midfielder Domingo said. "Also, to be back in the Mother City. I would like to help the team be successful.

"From a personal perspective I would like to score goals and get assists, but it is all about the team.”

City are renowned for their ball-playing style and Domingo is looking forward to adding his craft.

"I am definitely a technical player, I am not a physical type!” he said.

Domingo was also previously with BidVest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns in the DStv Premiership.
