Transfer news: AmaZulu release Darren Smith and assess Lucky Nguzana

AmaZulu have parted ways with Darren Smith while they have welcomed back fellow striker Lucky Nguzana for a trial.
Smith was signed by former Usuthu coach Craig Rosslee last term from Ajax Cape Town.
The 19-year-old was later loaned to Vasco da Gama before returning to the Durban outfit at the start of the season.
However, the player's contract has been terminated at his request.
"He was frustrated at not having game-time," explains AmaZulu coach Steve Barker.
"We had to respect that and we wish him all the best in what he does in future endeavours. It was a question of him not playing much and I thought his career would come off but unfortunately it didn't."
Meanwhile, Barker confirmed he is assessing Nguzana.
"Yes, we are assessing him and we have not made a decision about him. But since we lost Smith and Linda Bhengu [through injury] we will make decision soon, but it looks positive that we will sign him."
Nguzana initially left AmaZulu in 2013/14 in questionable fashion after seemingly committing his services to the club. He then penned a two-year contract with Platinum Stars in July last year but left Dikwena due to a lack of game-time.
