Johannesburg - PSL general manager Derek Blanckensee is looking forward to the
business of the off-season transfer window, and is confident the league
are ready to deal with all the comings and goings.
According to the Football411 website, despite plenty of deals having already been struck between clubs
for players, those contracts can only be officially concluded as of

around the world and our staff are experienced in carrying out the
He added: "What is important for us is to ensure that we process
all the documentation for the players who will participate in the Absa
Premiership fixtures on the opening weekend."
