Cape Town - Moroka Swallows have been one of the many PSL teams busy in the transfer window.
Following a disappointing last season where they narrowly avoided relegation, coach Zeca Marques is digging deep in the transfer market in order to avoid a repeat of last season.
The club is in search of a quality striker to cover for and partner up with 36-year-old veteran, Siyabonga Nomvethe.
Former AmaZulu striker, Josef Lekata, is reportedly training with Swallows along with other three strikers.

Other than a striker, the Dube Birds are well covered, according to the club's website.
“Over and above that, the goalkeeping department has been strengthened by the Serbian Obren Cuckovic - who stands an impressive 1.91m tall - while the experienced Greg Etafia and Sage Stephens remain in place,” the club said.
Birds have also secured the services of former Red Star Belgrade player, Boris Savic, to bolster their defence.
“Larry Cohen, Ashraf Hendricks, Rudi Isaacs, Luvengu Mungomeni and Shere Lekgotoane are also secured. The skilful Tsietsi Mahoa has been brought in at left back.”
In midfield, Swallows have secured the services of Lantshani Phalani with the club having high hopes for the player. Serbian Vladimir Mandic will play alongside Phalani while they also have Lucky Baloi and Philane Cele on loan from Kaizer Chiefs.
“Kevin Ormondi, the Kenyan international, from Gor Mahia club, a number 10/winger, has been purchased. In case of need, one foreigner spot has been kept open.”
Moroka Swallows take on Orlando Pirates in their opening PSL encounter on Saturday, August 9 at 20:15.
