Shonga Out, Ekstein In?

News reaching the Siya crew is that AmaZulu FC have backtracked on a decision to sign a striker who has been training with the club.

As previously reported by the crew, Justin Shonga's deal with Usuthu was as good as done, but in a twist of events, it is understood that the striker has raised doubts with the technical team.  

Free agent, Pule Ekstein, has also been training with the Kwa-Zulu Natal club, under the watchful eye of Usuthu coach Benni McCarthy.

On Sunday after the club's defeat in the KZN Premier Cup final, McCarthy said that there is no hurry to make a decision on either player.

"We will have a look at them. We are not in any hurry to add them, but when there's quality like that available, we have to look and see if it fits in our system," McCarthy told the media.

"So yeah, we've got a week or two to look monitor them." 

Insiders have since revealed that Ekstein is likely to be the club's latest addition, with Siya sources indicating that an agreement has been reached between the two parties.

Sources have also indicated that a two-year deal is on the cards.

McCarthy also expressed his satisfaction with Philani Zulu and Mxolisi Kunene, as he feels they will add value to the team. 

View the ‘unknowns’ expected to dazzle in the DStv Premiership this season:

 

"Yeah, I'm very happy with Philani Zulu, he is a player I've enjoyed watching, then Mxolisi Kunene whom I've always been his fan from my days at Cape Town City. Now he is with us, I'm sure when he is fit, he will be good for us, we will be solid," the coach added.
