“Sibusiso Khumalo has been with the club since last week Thursday. Another notable player is Issa Sarr who was at Pirates, they are here working with the club.”

Ajax are preparing for life in the second tier of SA football after they accepted the Premier Soccer League decision to deduct points from them.
