According to local media reports, the Swaziland duo of Felix Badenhorst and Sabelo Ndzinisa have failed to land contracts at Bloemfontein Celtic.

The two Isihlangu Semnikati strikers were on trial with the South African Premier Soccer League side; with the aim of playing in the Absa Premiership.

However, KickOff,com reports that the duo have been allowed to go on trial at rival PSL side's having failed to impress in Bloemfontein.

According to the club's CEO Khumbulani Konco, the two Swazi internationals are not what they wanted.

"They are good players, no doubt about that," Konco is quoted by KickOff.

"Both players did well but they are not what we are looking for in terms of our striking force."


Badenhorst was heavily linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs prior the 2016 COSAFA Castle Cup in Namibia and was hoping to impress the Siwelele technical bench led by coach Serame Letsoaka.

Furthermore, the former Jomo Cosmos striker was hoping to make his way back to the PSL after bagging the top goalscorer award at the recent COSAFA tournament; he netted five goals.

On the other hand, Ndzinisa was reported to be scouted by Mamelodi Sundowns during their 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier against Guinea, but nothing has materialised thus far.
