Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have confirmed the release of four players - Vuyisile Wana, Robert Sankara, Ayanda Dlamini and Moeketsi Mvula.

Phunya Sele Sele finished the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season only one point clear of the relegation zone, and are hoping to re-shape their squad for next season.

Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco explained the decision to release the foursome, according to SuperSport: “We are earnestly looking to revamp the team and have released some players based on the recommendations of the technical team. We have subsequently added new players whose names will soon be announced once negotiations have been finalised by their respective teams.

"The past season was not only tumultuous but made us react promptly towards building a solid and competent squad for the 2017/18 season.

"It is the nature of the industry; unfortunately, some players will leave, paving the way for the new signings.

"We genuinely appreciate the contribution made by the players in helping the team to avoid the axe and wish them all the best in their future endeavours. We value our supporters and it is important that we strengthen the team through proper restructuring."
