"Kizito is an exciting player who we believe in a lot. He has qualities that we will greatly benefit from in the offence.

"In him, we get a powerful player who works over large areas and with his presence, he becomes important for us in the offensive penalty area.

"It gives us a tool in the attack that we lacked a bit before, where we now get a player who wants to be in the box. With all his qualities, Kizito will be a perfect complement to the other attacking players we have."
