MBABANE – South African premiership side, Santos have agreed to release Sihlangu’s midfielder, Tony ‘TT’ Tsabedze to join Sihlangu’s camp on Sunday.

This was confirmed by the squad’s logistics manager, Comfort Shongwe yesterday. Tony was one of two players that had not made it to camp at the start of the week. The other player is Dennis ‘Yuki’ Masina, who is not known when he will arrive as his team, Orlando Pirates is yet to respond to the FA’s request to have him join camp.

"We are expecting Tony to arrive on Sunday, but we are not sure about ‘Yuki’, because Pirates have not yet responded to our request," he said.

Shongwe said the squad would likely shift its camp base by mid-next week as they need to be closer to the Somhlolo National Stadium, where the squad would play its Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ghana next Sunday.

"We have not yet identified a venue to set our new base due to the ongoing COMESA summit. Most of the hotels are fully booked, so we would have to wait and make a decision based on available accommodation at the time we make the switch," he said.

Quizzed on the players who had to under-go scans on Tuesday, Shongwe said all players who were due for review yesterday afternoon, where-upon the squad’s doctors would make a decision on their fate.

These players included Mbabane Highlanders’ Eugene Dlamini and Jomo Cosmos’ Mfanafuthi ‘Taribo’ Bhembe.

"We hope to have a full team in camp at least by the end of the day on Monday," he said. Sihlangu are currently camped at Mhlume Club.
