The Siya crew reported last week that midfielder Phumlani Ntshangase remained keen on a move elsewhere despite having had his Bidvest Wits contract extended by another year.
Ntshangase spent the 2018/19 season on loan at SuperSport United, but the Tshwane outfit failed to make his switch permanent – and Siya sources suggested it was because they could not meet Wits’ R3-million asking price.
The Siya crew reported last week that Maritzburg United had joined the race for his signature alongside Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, who had both switched their focus elsewhere after they, too, were spooked by the transfer fee.
Maritzburg are now expected to conclude a deal with the utility player – but only on a loan deal until the end of the upcoming season.
The announcement, which sources have told the crew is imminent, would make Ntshangase their second signing this week after the Midlands outfit confirmed the return of defender Kwanda Mngonyama from Cape Town City yesterday.
