"Zakri and Thela are likely to join Maritzburg United," a source tells this website.

Zakri impressed upfront for the Urban Warriors, scoring four league goals in a six-month stint, but was unable to help the club avoid relegation, while Ngobeni also starred in Ea Lla Koto's Nedbank Cup triumph in 2017/18.

However, there is intense competition for game-time at Chloorkop in both their positions.

Downs earlier today confirmed the signing of midfielder Lebohang Maboe from Maritzburg.
