Despite reports suggesting that Swaziland and Mbabane Swallows duo of Felix Badenhorst and Sabelo Ndzinisa have failed trials at Bloemfontein Celtic, the latest reports suggest that Siwelele still want them.
A report by the Times of Swaziland quotes coach Serame Letsoaka saying that he wants the two players back in Bloemfontein.
Local media reports revealed last week the two players failed to make their mark under Letsoaka after attending a trial, but it looks like they will play in the Premier Soccer League next season.
Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco was quoted as saying the two players have talent, but were not what they were looking for in terms of their attack.

"You must never believe everything you read. It’s always best to get it from us and I can tell you, those boys will play for Celtic," Letsoaka was quoted by the Times.
"Their team gave us their asking offer, and I believe it is only a matter of time before an agreement is reached, but I want them here."
On the other hand, it is reported that the two players are set to participate in the Charity Cup in Swaziland and Siwelele are set to send their delegation to watch the strikers.
“My technical team will also see what we can do to come down to Swaziland to see them play in the Charity Cup,” adds letsoaka.
Furthermore, it is reported that Celtic have been in contact with Swallows boss Victor ‘Maradona’ Gamedze after he gave them their asking price for both players.
