Guinea-Bissau international Toni Silva has officially joined Egyptian club Al Ittihad.
The 25-year-old, who only joined the Brazilians in July last year, leaves the Chloorkop club having scored just two goals in 11 appearances.
Silva arrived in Tshwane on a growing reputation having notable come through the youth ranks at current English Premier League leaders, Liverpool.
The forward's second of two goals came away to AmaZulu in a 3-3 draw last September, having also scored in the MTN8 in aggregate defeat to Cape Town City earlier that month.
Having managed a mere 24 minutes in the Brazilians last seven Absa Premiership encounter, the writing was on the wall for the former Portugal youth international who will now hope to find his form in North Africa.
Al Ittihad Alexandria currently occupy 13th place on the log standings in Egypt's top-flight.
