They say a new squad rebuild takes two to three seasons or transfer windows, and it should not be different for the Glamour Boys.

  1. Edmilson Dove, central defender.
  2. Dillon Solomons, right-back/ winger.
  3. Yusuf Maart, central midfielder.
  4. Njabulo Blom, defensive midfielder.
  5. Caleb Bimenyimana, center forward.

Lastly, a few players among Ashley du Preez, Zitha Kwinika, Lehlohonolo Matlou, Sinethemba Sithebe, and Kamohelo Mahlatsi were starting to sparkle before the interruption of the 2022 World Cup break.

Meanwhile, the 12-time PSL champions are hotly linked with Pule Mmodi, Celimpilo Ngema and to some extent, Sphesihle Maduna.

Amakhosi will be action in action on 30 December against Golden Arrows in KwaMashu.
