New AmaZulu FC attacking midfielder Ethan Brooks has explained why he joined the club in the current transfer window.

The talented playmaker was snapped up by Usuthu from fellow Premier Soccer League (PSL) club TS Galaxy last month.

Brooks, 20, who was born and bred in Johannesburg, pointed out that he considers Durban to be his second home.

“It’s never an easy choice to join any club but it is something I had to think about and I’m happy that I decided to come here,” Brooks said.

“Durban is a second home for me. My mom is from KwaZulu-Natal, so I used to visit that place.

“But also, AmaZulu have a lot of history and playing for a club like this you want to do your best and that’s what I hope to do when I get my chance.”

Brooks was nurtured in the Panorama FC academy in Roodepoort, Johannesburg before joining Galaxy as a 17-year-old old five years ago.

The Bafana Bafana international made 37 appearances in the DStv Premiership for Galaxy before joining AmaZulu.
