“We will see how it goes and a final decision on him will be made in due course.

“We are looking at bolstering the left side of our play,” added Motaung. “We know what he can offer but he has been out of action for a while and with our new coach (Giovanni Solinas) also coming in, we want to make informed decisions before finalising anything.”
