Cape Town City have reached an agreement with FK Partizan to be a feeder club for the Serbian giants.

Just last year, Ajax Amsterdam cut ties with Ajax Cape Town, selling their 51 percent share with the Mother City-based side changing its name to Cape Town Spurs.

And now crosstown rivals City have also become an affiliate club to the most successful team in Serbian history, Belgrade-based FK Partizan.

Peter Leeuwenburg recently left the Citizens to join up with Dutch Eredivise side Groningen while chairman John Comitis is also hoping to secure an overseas move for midfielder Thabo Nodada.

"FK Partizan's ground breaking cooperation with Cape Town City Football Club is underway, as the delegation from Belgrade visits South Africa for the first time. The cooperation will see a number of elite African talents move to Europe in the coming years," City announced in their statement on the club’s official Twitter account.
