One of Mamelodi Sundowns’ strikers is currently with Maritzburg United, and a deal is expected imminently.
It was reported by the Siya crew last week that Yannick Zakri is set to complete a move to the Team of Choice, following his return to Mzansi.
Siya sources have since revealed that the Ivorian is currently with Maritzburg, although the club is yet to confirm his signing, with indications that some of the paperwork still needs to be concluded.
Zakri is believed to have one more year left on his contract with Sundowns, and despite his exit from Masandawana close to being confirmed, it is yet to be revealed whether the player will complete a loan move or a permanent transfer.
The Team of Choice recently completed the signing of Keletso Makgalwa from Sundowns on a season-long loan stint, after the player put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with the Brazilians.
Now, it remains to be seen when Maritzburg will confirm Zakri’s signing and when the striker will be eligible to play.
