The move was a contingency plan after first-choice goalkeeper Khune Itumeleng suffered a long term injury.
But Akpeyi has been so impressive he has remained the first choice for Manager Ernst Middendorp, although Khune has been in and out with niggling injury concerns.
On Wednesday, the club confirmed the Nigerian goalkeeper has agreed a contract extension that’ll see him stay for another two seasons.
