Ertugral joined Maritzburg last week on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

According to Independent Media, Khenyeza informed AmaZulu’s general manager, Lunga Sokhela that Ertugral approached him and that Usuthu granted him an opportunity to leave.

AmaZulu’s team manager, Qedi Dlamini, said they won’t stand in Khenyeza’s way.

“He has informed us about that. He is still contracted to us. We will sit down and discuss (about) his interest. He knows that we had a plan for him after his football career here at AmaZulu but we won’t stand on his way. We will make a proper statement during the day about the latest on Khenyeza, ” Dlamini explained.

United chairman Farook Kadodia confirmed that they are talking to Khenyeza.

“I can’t comment much about Mabhudi. I will see him today and negotiate a contract with him. Once everything is finished we will inform the public.” Kadodia elaborated.

Khenyeza’s possible reunion with Ertugral has caught many by surprise rocky relationship during their times at Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town.
