CD Almuñecar City are delighted to announce the signing of South African forward Zaid Patel for the 2020/21 season.
The 26-year-old striker joins the club from South African National First Division side TS Galaxy.
Zaid came through the ranks at Bidvest Vits before successful senior spells with Chippa United, AmaZulu FC, Stellebosch FC, Witbank Spurs and most recently TS Galaxy.
The 6'2" forward was also called up to represent the South African U23s squad in 2016.
In addition to his playing career, Patel is a successful professional E-Sports player currently with South African giants Orlando Pirates.
George Jermy commented: "On behalf of everybody at the club, we're really happy to welcome Zaid to CD Almuñecar City for the 2020/21 season.
He's a strong and powerful striker who has a natural eye for goal - we think he's perfectly suited to European football and we can't wait to see how he fits in.
Zaid visited the club in December last year and we were all impressed with his professionalism approach and attitude towards the game."
