The 25-year-old has attended trials a several clubs already, including at another former team Moroka Swallows FC, but, he couldn’t secure a deal with the Birds.

Mahlatsi was released by Chiefs last September after failing to make an impact at the club despite having joined with high hopes of elevating his career.

Things turned bad for the striker, with limited game time at the Naturena-based outfit being the main reason for his release.

The former South Africa Under-23 player is said to be currently training with an amateur club to mantain his fitness while his hunt for a new club continues.

It has been revealed that the striker was offered a contract by a club in the Motsepe Foundation Championship, but the striker’s salary demand were not met, and he turned down the offer.

“It is very tough for him at the moment because most of his peers are playing every weekend and he can’t find a team. I honestly thought that he was going to be signed at Swallows because they know him, but that was not the case. I don’t know what went wrong there because he is a good player,” said the informant.

“But he is not letting his head drop because he knows that something will happen for him soon. What I like is that he is training every day to stay in shape. What happened at Chiefs is all in the past and some people see it as a huge flop. But he just wants to focus on the future and getting a new team.”
