The Cell C Sharks have announced the signing of centre, Wandile Mjekevu on a two year deal, which will take effect from July 2015.  

Mjekevu previously played for the Emirates Golden Lions and the Sharks, before joining French Top 14 club, Perpignan in 2013 and will now return to South Africa after gaining some valuable experience in France.

"We are delighted that Wandile has decided to return to the Sharks. He had a great stint in France and he is an unbelievable prospect. His strength and agility around the park will most certainly bolster our backline and we look forward to him progressing at the franchise,” Sharks Director of Rugby, Gary Gold said.

The former junior Springbok is also pleased to be returning to the Durban based team.

"I am thrilled to be back in Durban. I'm looking forward to being a part of and contributing within the new and exciting set-up at the Sharks,” he said.
