At the time of writing, KickOff.com understands that AmaZulu have agreed to take Spencer for a one-season loan that could become a permanent transfer thereafter.
All that is left for the deal to happen is for the player to commit to the move.
Spencer was born and raised in Durban and a move to Usuthu would give him more of a chance of getting game time, which his career desperately needs.
With the Clever Boys having signed Thomas Sweswe and Aaron Mokoena, Spencer's chances of playing centre back will be even slimmer than they were before.
AmaZulu, however, showed in the 6-0 loss against Kaizer Chiefs that they need back up in this area.
When either Bukasa Kasonga or Carlington Nyadombo not be available, the club have looked thin in this department.
Spencer, a former Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs player, was once on the fringes of Bafana Bafana selection and has not consistently reached the levels his talent warrants.
