BANTU midfielder, Teboho ‘Shakes’ Lilane, has joined Matlama on a season-long loan deal after struggling for game time last season at the champions.
Bantu president, John Leuta, this week told the Lesotho Times that they released Lilane after receiving a written request for his services from Matlama.
Meanwhile, Linare who have been struggling during the last two seasons are hopeful of reinforcing their squad with experienced campaigners such as Pali Tšalong, Teboho Mota and Motlomelo Mkwanazi.
Tšalong and Mota were on Matlama’s books but went into self-imposed exile due to work commitments. Mkwanazi featured for Sandawana last season.
Linare Public Relations Officer, Refiloe Makhobotloane, said his side were in the market for new signings whose identities could not be revealed at the moment for fear of jeopardising the negotiations that were in progress.
“Yes, we have a few new faces training with our club, but nothing has been finalised and we are still negotiating with their clubs.
“We cannot give out names at this stage but we are looking at reinforcing the team with seasoned campaigners,” Makhobotloane said.
Meanwhile, LDF coach, Motheo Mohapi, said his side would register the Likhopo duo of Thabo Mongali and Teboho Ratebesi for the new season.
He said they would join the team as soon as they finished their army officer training programme.
“We will register them once they finish their training in October or November. We have already sorted out the paperwork with their previous club,” Mohapi said.
He also said it was highly unlikely that veteran midfielder Molefe Lekoekoe would return to action this season as he was battling to recover from a knee injury.
“He is still not back with the team and it is highly unlikely that he will return to action anytime soon,” he said, adding, time would tell if he would recover.
