In an audacious bid to avoid the axe, Bay United have signed Cameroonian striker Njoh Jean from Air India FC.

And they hope that his clearance certificate will be available when they meet Bidvest Wits at the EPRU Stadium in Port Elizabeth on January 11..

According to SA FA regulations, it is the PSL that obtains the certificate once the player has signed.

PSL offices are cclosed f until next Monday.

"South Africa has a good league," the 26-year old is quoted as saying on the club's website.

"The standard is very high compared to my home country Cameroon or India where I was before coming here."

"United is a team with a lot of promise, and it was willing to give me an opportunity.

If the former Galatasaray FC striker can do what he is paid to do, then coach Khabo Zondo won't have to burn the midnight oil trying to figure out where the goals will come from.

After two matches that saw United collecting four points, a draw against Kaizer Chiefs and a resounding victory over Golden Arrows, there is no doubt that they finished the first half in buoyant mood.

"I am happy that we are slowly moving in the right direction," added Zondo. "Jean brings something that we have been yearning for - scoring."
