KickOff.com understands Mamelodi Sundowns could loan forward Yannick Zakri and goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni to Maritzburg United for the season.
Both men are out of favour at Sundowns, having been sent on loan to Ajax Cape Town and Free State Stars last term.
"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.
