Former Kaizer Chiefs star Hendrick Ekstein has secured a move to Azerbaijan side, Sabail FK.

The 29-year-old player has been on a job hunt since his abrupt departure from Sabah FC last month. The attack-minded player was linked with a return to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) after leaving Sabah, but instead opted to move back to Azerbaijan.

Ekstein has now team up with Ghanaian legend Michael Essien at Sabail.


According to KickOff.com, the club initially made contact while the midfielder was still with the Glamour Boys. But due to contractual obligations, the player declined.
