Brentford have signed Kamohelo Mokotjo from FC Twente for an undisclosed fee, agreeing a three year deal with the player.

The South African midfielder would be the Bees' third summer signing for the first team after the capture of Luke Daniels and Henrik Dalsgaard.

The 26-year-old will be brought in to bolster the midfield and add a steel that was sometimes missing during the past season.

The defensive midfielder has secured a Netherlands passport, making his move into the English game a much smoother one.

Kamohelo Mokotjo of Zwolle

Mokotjo was born in Odendaalsrus, which is approximately halfway between Bloemfontein and Johannesburg.

He started his career with SuperSport United but made just one appearance before he moved to Holland and Feyenoord.

The Dutch side loaned him out to Excelsior, who were later managed by former Bees boss Marinus Dijkhuizen, for the 2009/10 season.

He made 35 Eredivisie appearances for Feyenoord after returning from his loan spell before joining PEC Zwolle in 2013, making 28 league appearances and scored twice.

FC Twente signed him in 2014 and he has, since, made 97 league appearances scoring three goals.

He was linked with Brentford a year later but work permit issues prevented a deal from taking place and became captain in the 2016/17 season.

Internationally, Mokotjo has made six appearances for the Bafana Bafana.
