“We are almost completing our signings and are glad that most of them have been completed with the remainder on the verge of being confirmed. We want to build a strong team that will fight for trophies next season,” Ekhalie told Goal.

Ekhalie however, declined to state who they will drop insisting that they are still working on the list. “The players to be let go will only be known next week after the coach comes back from national team duty.”
