CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town's CEO Ari Efstathiou is remaining mum about which players they want to sign to bolster their squad for the new season.

Former player Dominic Isaacs trained with the team after he was offloaded by Bloemfontein Celtics, despite his contract still having one more year to run.

Isaacs joined Siwelele from Kaizer Chiefs at the beginning of last season and made 20 league starts.

He is currently a free agent and will look to secure a move soon before the start of the new season.

Efstathiou says they aren't just speaking to one player and have widened their search for suitable players.

"We talking to a lot of players. We are looking to add couple of centre-backs and obviously we are trying to see who will fit the best and fit into the budget as well."

He says striker Nathan Paulse is on the verge of making a return to the Urban Warriors as he has shown improvement in training with the team.

"The deal isn't concluded but the club is intending to sign him but we have not concluded it."

In addition, Efstathiou says six players have been promoted from their youth development ranks and this proves the point that the team is youth-orientated again.

He says the coach is working hard to stabilise the team and bring some experienced players to add to the squad.
