A reliable source has confirmed that Usuthu are closing in on Amakhosi target, Katlego Otladisa.

The 25-year-old, who is equally comfortable playing down both the left and right wings, has been a star to date this season for Marumo Gallants in the CAF Confederations Cup and in the DStv Premiership, playing a total of 21 matches.

According to the source, Otladisa could still move to Durban before the close of the January transfer window.

Meanwhile, Abubakar Mobara’s move from Cape Town City FC to AmaZulu is according to Kickoff, “90% almost done”.

The centre-back has managed 14 appearances for the Citizens this season and is expected to be announced as one of Usuthu’s newest signings in the coming days, provided the last few sticking points can be ironed out.

Having finished last season as runners-up in the DStv Premiership, the current campaign has been more of a struggle for AmaZulu.

Although they are in fifth place in the log with 27 points after 20 matches, they have played as many as three more games than a number of teams below them in the standings.
