Orlando Pirates are reportedly interested in signing TS Galaxy defender Siphelele Ndlovu for next season. Sources close to the club say Pirates and Ndlovu’s current club are negotiating a transfer cost which could see him move to the glamour side.

Ndlovu was called up to the Bafana-Bafana squad to play Zambia last year and has been earmarked as a possible future star.

AmaZulu is reportedly more than interested in securing the services of goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs. The club has according to reports offered Josephs a three-year deal at double his current salary.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Josephs entered negotiations with AmaZulu because of his lack of game time at Bidvest Wits. Josephs only made 10 appearances in the 2017/18 season.

Sources close to the player say Bidvest released him because he could not play and confirmed he had received an offer from AmaZulu. As part of the deal, Josephs is expected to mentor and provide competition to AmaZulu keepers Siyabonga Mbatha, Energy Murambadoro and Neil Boshoff.

Meanwhile, Bidvest Wits are set to dump 16 players from its ranks as the club looks to make room for other players which it hopes will lead it back to PSL glory.

Wits’ defence of their PSL title collapsed spectacularly this season, the team going from number one to near relegation and finally finishing 13th on the log.

Among those on the way out; veteran goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs is heading to AmaZulu, Vincent Pule is set to join Orlando Pirates - with Phumlani Ntshangase and Ben Motshwari touted to follow, while James Keene is SuperSport United-bound.

Thobani Mncwango and a host of other players are also reportedly set to be on the chopping block.

One club source told KickOff.co.za that at least 16 players who performed poorly would be released. The source admitted that finding replacements who were up to scratch was a big challenge.
