First it was Thembinkosi "Terror" Fanteni to go, now Ajax Cape Town looks set to lose another deadly striker, Nathan Paulse, to an overseas club.

Paulse is going back to Sweden this weekend for a final assessment and medical tests with First Division outfit Hammarby.

"It is his second trip to Sweden, they want to have a look at him and also do the medical at the same time," said Mike Makaab, Paulse's business manager.

Fanteni left the Urban Warriors at the end of last year to join Israeli club Maccabi Haifa where he has established himself as one of their most trusted strikers.

Another player from the Makaab stable, and fellow Ajax player, Brett Evans, is being assessed by Valeranga in Norway.

Valeranga, who once had Premier Soccer League boss Kjetil Siem as chief executive, is the club that once signed Mbulelo Mabizela from Tottenham Hotspur.

"Brett has just returned from Norway where he had several training sessions with Valeranga, we are still waiting for them to get back to us," said Makaab.

"The information we have received is that Brett has done very well, we hope to get feedback from them by the end of next week."

Makaab also revealed that former Pirates captain Benedict "Botsotso" Vilakazi was stying put at Danish club side Aalborg Boldspilklub.

"We all know that Tso did not feature in the senior team's activities until the last five games where everything was shaping up so well for him. The problem now is that their coach [Erik Hamren] has left.

"We are just hoping things will still be good for him and Bhele (Siyabonga Nomvete) when a new coach comes in."

Makaab will sit down with Zambian striker Collins Mbesuma in two weeks' time to discuss his future, with a return to Chiefs a possibility.

Bafana Bafana defender Bryce Moon is also wanted by clubs in Greece and Germany, Makaab said.
