South Africa international Kamohelo Mokotjo has completed his move to Major League Soccer (MLS) side FC Cincinnati.
The experienced defensive midfielder was recently released by English Championship outfit Brentford after the club missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
The Orange and Blue made the announcement on their official website on Thursday:
A club statement read: “FC Cincinnati have signed South Africa international midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo using Targeted Allocation Money.”
“Mokotjo, 29, will occupy an international roster slot and be added to FC Cincinnati’s 2020 roster upon the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P1 Visa.”
Mokotjo made 26 appearances, including 25 starts, for Brentford scoring one goal and adding two assists across all competitions during the recent 2019/20 season.
Cincinnati general manager Gerard Nijkamp welcomed the hard-tackling player to the American side and he lauded him as an intelligent player.
“We are pleased to add a player in Kamo who will be a strong fit for what we are looking to do at FC Cincinnati,” Nijkamp said.
“He is an intelligent player that will be an asset for our club on both sides of the pitch. We look forward to welcoming Kamo to Cincinnati and having him integrate within our locker room.” Mokotjo is a well-travelled player having played for Feyenoord, FC Twente, Excelsior and PEC Zwolle in Holland, before moving to Brentford in 2017
