The former Utrecht Academy player is in the South African capital in an attempt to land a contract with the University side.


Kalusha, who can play as an attacking midfielder or as a striker, was recommended to AmaTuks head coach Sammy Troughton after impressing for Tura Magic in the Namibian Premier League.

"We do have Washington [Arubi], Partson [Jaure], Atusaye [Nyondo]. He has impressed us, we haven't made a final decision on him yet.

"Next week we have a game away to Bidvest Wits and I think then we can have a real good look at him."
