The new arrivals will join South African defender Matthew Booth and Zambian international Gift Kampamba at the Russian Premier-Liga side and they may not be the last arrivals as Rostselmash are understood to have more than ten Africans players on trial at present.

Bondarenko link
The deal was brokered by Viktor Bondarenko, a Russian coach who has been based in South Africa for many years now and was instrumental in FC Lokomotiv Moskva's purchase of South African internationals Jacob Lekcetho and Bennet Mnguni.

International credentials
The 23-year-old Hendricks, a South African Under-21 international who can play both in defence and attack, is joining from Ajax Cape Town, while Zwane, a midfield player, has signed from Moroka Swallows. Zwane, 29, whose nickname is 'Ferrari', made his full international debut in September last year against the Ivory Coast.
