Tlou Segolela headlined the list of players leaving Platinum Stars ahead of the new season. Stars announced their new signings on Thursday and also revealed the list of players that will no longer be with the North West based team next season.

Segolela, a former Orlando Pirates fan favourite, failed to hold down a permanent position under Cavin Johnson and was considered surplus to requirements alongside the likes of Letladi Madubanya, Thabiso Semenya, Mduduzi Nyanda, Sibusiso Hadebe, Bouna Condoul, Emmanuel Mathias and Nicholas Mlambo.

Ealizor Rodgers left and joined Bidvest Wits, Bongi Ntuli and Robin Ngalande returned to Mamelodi Sundowns and Wits respectively after their loan spells ended.

Dikwena signed mostly unknown players from the lower divisions as Johnson looks to rebuild the team.

New players: Katlego Khunou, Tshirelatso Lesabane, Sipho Senne, Sphamandla Mlilo, Sphiwe Mnguni, Nhlakanipho Duma, Gift Links, Kamohelo Mathe, Thuto Mphahlele, Thobani Kunene and Benson Shilongo.
