"Basically we getting Gerald Phiri," De Sa tells

"We still trying to do a deal with Wits and the work permit. He is still at Wits, but I think he is just trying to do his permit and we'll see if he can do it as quickly as possible.

"For now that's it, that's the only thing that is really, really happening. The rest is obviously a lot of speculation, negotiations and talking," adds De Sa, who recently lost the services of left-back Siyabonga Zulu to log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Injured winger Katlego Otladisa is also on his way to Sundowns, while Gift Links and Benson Shilongo have left for Egypt.

Stars have brought in Zama Rambuwane from SuperSport United as a replacement for Otladisa, as well as Letsie Koapeng and Manti Mekoa in a bid to escape relegation.
