The Premier Soccer League's January transfer window could be dominated by strikers switching clubs in search of game time. The window opened yesterday and will close on Friday, January 29.The Times has been informed that Kaizer Chiefs marksman David Zulu is seeking a loan move. The 29-year-old signed for Amakhosi amid much fanfare a year ago, but has made just four starts and five substitute appearances since his arrival at Naturena.The player's agent, Abbie Rasimpi of Liberate Resources, said the club had not discussed the player's future. But he added that Zulu would welcome a loan move.Still with Chiefs, Bongani Ndulula is rumoured to be on his way out also in search of game time. The former Amazulu striker has made a mere three substitute appearances since he joined the club from Amazulu.Another striker who could be on the move is Phumelele Bhengu of Supersport United, who has failed to score a goal in five substitute appearances for Matsatsantsa a Pitori. Bhengu, who was the National First Division's top scorer with 22 goals for Thanda Royal Zulu in the past season, has expressed the wish to look elsewhere.Malawian marksman Esau Kanyenda is reportedly set for a move back home to play for Big Bullets.In other transfers expected to happen this month, Mark Mayambela looks set to leave Chippa United. The dribbling wizard admitted recently that he took a pay cut when he signed for the Chilli Boys from Royal Eagles and the ball was in Chippa United's court to improve his package. Mayambela has been linked with Tshwane sides Mamelodi Sundowns and Supersport United.Speaking of Sundowns, The Times understands that unwanted midfielder Lindokuhle Mbatha could be heading back to Platinum Stars.Another Sundowns fringe player, Lebohang Mokoena, has continuously been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs. "Cheeseboy" has featured in just 15 matches for Sundowns in the past three seasons partly because of injuries.
