Lazarous Kambole (Zambia), Daniel Akpeyi (Nigeria), Teenage Hadebe (Zimbabwe), Adriamirado Andrianarimanana (Madagascar), Leonardo Castro (Colombia), Samir Nurkovic (Serbia) and James Kotei (Ghana) are the seven foreign players on their books.

Castro is now even more likely to leave before the transfer window closes.
