Ntuli remains a Mamelodi Sundowns player after the Brazilians loaned him out to AmaZulu, following a previous loan spell at Platinum Stars.

The striker was however close to making a move to Europe in the off-season after a trial in Sweden, but has claimed the Allsvenskan club's offer was insufficient to tempt him away from South Africa.
