Former Stade Rennes striker Kermit Erasmus has officially signed for Swedish side AFC Eskilstuna.

The former Orlando Pirates has penned a two-year deal with the premier division side, ending speculation over a possible return to the PSL.

Erasmus was the subject of several PSL clubs after becoming a free agent earlier this season after parting ways with French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes.

The 27-year-Old said to Eskilstuna website after signing the contract, revealing that this wasn’t an easy decision to make.

“I hope to win the love of fans through my goals. It was a difficult decision to make, but there is a good opportunity for me to play again. I have not played football for a few months so I have a lot of desire. I just want to be happy to do something that I like,” said Erasmus.

The former SuperSport United striker moved to France during the 2015/16 season, but after struggling for game time in his first few months, he was relegated to the reserve teams.

Rennes recalled him for the start of the 2017/18 French Ligue 1 season, but struggled to break into the first team, and ended up being relegated to the reserve team yet again.

In February this year, soon after the closing of the transfer window, Rennes announced their decision to terminate Erasmus’ contract with immediate effect.
