Cape Town - Ajax coach Roger de Sa revealed he is still in the market for a central defender and wing despite being just eight days away from their first competitive game.
The Urban Warriors kick-off their 2014/2015 campaign against Orlando Pirates at Cape Town Stadium in the MTN8 on Wednesday 5 August.
Roger de Sa, Ajax's head coach, says that the transfers will likely go through after the club's season opener.
"We are still looking and we are in negotiations with the two clubs, but it's going to be difficult," he told Football411.
"We have to continue trying to get the players, but it's not easy because everybody is going for the same material. We're in the race so let's see if we can get the ones we want."
De Sa did not name the two players, but insisted it wasn't too late to bring in new faces and that the late signings would not disrupt the side.
"A lot of the bigger clubs actually delay the negotiations for as long as they can so you don't always get everything early," he added
"A lot of clubs play the waiting game because they are also trying to see who they can get. A lot of it becomes very active in the last week [of the transfer window]."
The Urban Warriors lost a glut of players at the end of last season; with stalwart defender and former captain Dominic Isaacs and former Bafana Bafana midfielder Lance Davids being released after their contracts came to an end in June.
Nazeer Allie, another former captain, and talented midfielder Keagan Dolly also departed Ikamva; moving to Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively.
