Cape Town - Moroka Swallows CEO Leon Prins is keen to hold on to some of his veteran players as the Dube Birds prepare for life in the National First Division.

According to the Sport24 source at the club, Prins wants to take a few experienced players to the NFD.

Among the players that will remain with the club is veteran goalkeeper, Greg Etafia, as well as two South African greats, Siyabonga Nomvethe and Lefa Tsutsulupa.

The latter is being prepared for a role within the technical team.

“The club wants to remain with a few experienced players that will take a leading role in the NFD; however there are already offers for Nomvethe and Felix Obada among players that are still in the books of the team.

“It’s a difficult situation at the moment as some of these players are in the twilight of their careers and are not willing to go down and take a pay cut.”

The Dube Birds have already lost Vuyisile Wana and Lantshene Phalane, who have signed for Bloemfontein Celtic while Lucky Baloyi has returned to Kaizer Chiefs after the end of his loan spell.
