MARITZBURG United have parted ways with Ayanda Nkosi, Themba Mavundla and Veluyeke Zulu while the future of on-loan midfielder Siyabulela Shai remains hanging in the air.
Nkosi, Mavundla and Zulu have battled for game-time this season and have been afforded the opportunity to move elsewhere following the termination of their contracts by mutual agreement.
Maritzburg officials have confirmed to KickOff.com the departure of the three players, who are now likely to move to the First Division after failing to play any games this season.
“We have parted ways with those three players Nkosi, Mavundla and Zulu and they are now free to join clubs of their choices as they are now free agents,” says the Maritzburg official.
With regards to Shai, the club is engaging his parent club Mamelodi Sundowns. Shai is on loan from Sundowns for the season but has fallen out of favour at Maritzburg, who are now talking to his parent club as they seek to map the way forward.
The 22-year-old has started four games and scored once this term.
“We want to find an amicable solution to Shai’s situation which is why we are engaging Sundowns. For now he is with us on loan for the season,” adds the official. -KickOff.com
