Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa says the club is not going to make any more major signings before the transfer window shuts today, other than potentially finalising a deal for Abel Mabaso.
Ajax are in talks with Mamelodi Sundowns to enlist Mabaso on loan, while they recently recruited Asive Langwe, Larry Cohen, Prince Nxumalo and Thomas Chideu.
“Not at all, there is nothing really you guys [media] don't know about. We signed Asive Langwe, we also signed Larry Cohen as a cover as well and the only guy we are currently negotiating is Abel Mabaso from Sundowns,” De Sa said after his side beat Bidvest Wits on Sunday to set up an MTN8 Final with holders Kaizer Chiefs.
“It is just a question of paper work but that's it really, there is nothing else. Obviously the striker from Zimbabwe Thomas Chideu, I think the papers are through and on Monday [today] he will probably make his way down here.
“We are not going to spend millions or whatever, it is always the freebies and we make them into footballers.
“Mabaso is a loan deal with an option to buy, same with Asive and Larry is unemployed.”
De Sa previously worked with Langwe at Wits, and is confident he will add value at Ikamva.
“Look it was the same thing with Erwin Isaacs when we brought him. I know the players well and I know what they are capable of.
“They were playing for a star-studded team, a club that spent a lot of money to buy players and they can't get in to those teams, and they are looking for football.
“To see those guys who are not playing, it is sad for me because these are the guys that started with me. If we bring them here they are going to add to our side.”
