PSL clubs make big additions ahead of Nedbank Cup

The January transfer window has now slammed shut and even though a few deals are still being announced, clubs have settled on their squads ahead of the Nedbank Cup Last 32 that gets under way next week. It was a busy month for Premier Soccer League sides in the window, with most making significant changes to their squads. Platinum Stars did the most business with 10 new arrivals, while not far behind them were Chippa United (eight), and Ajax Cape Town and BidVest Wits (seven each). Many of the new players could well make their bow in the Nedbank Cup Last 32, providing the perfect platform for them to make an instant impression on fans.
