Fakaaati was convinced that former Mamelody Sundowns striker Fakamani Malambi had attracted the attention of Sekuhun United, who hope to continue to strengthen their side in the upcoming season.
Malambie was released by Downes after loan spells at AmaZulu and Chippa United where he failed to live up to expectations.
A source said head coach Kaitano Tembo is keen to bring the 24-year-old on board.
“When you deal with players like Fakamani there is always a risk factor because of their history and that is something you have to consider. But at the same time, it is our duty to make sure that the best talents of the country are noticed every week.
“Mahlambi is one of the best, everyone knows his qualities. You just need to make sure he gets proper guidance and that’s a risk the team is willing to take,” the source said.
