Bantu star eyes Matlama move

Mikia Kalati

OUT of contract Bantu attacking midfielder, Lebajoa Mosehlenyane, has set his sights on joining Matlama following the expiry of his deal with Econet Premier League pacesetters.

The 25-year old came to prominence during his time at the now defunct Mpharane Celtic where he also attracted the attention of then national under-17 coach, Bishop Molatoli, in the 2009/10 season.

He went on to play for his home team, Linare before Bantu come knocking in 2016.

However, his time at the Mafeteng club has been marred by injuries and lack of regular game time.

Mosehlenyane is currently training with Matlama following the expiry of his contract and he recently told the Sunday Express that he was weighing his options as he believed he could rediscover his best form at Tse Putsoa.

“I am yet to make a decision on my next step now that my contract at Bantu has expired,” Mosehlenyane said.

“Hopefully by next week everything will be finalised because I am still to meet with Bantu’s management and the two teams are also talking.”

Mosehlenyane said he could remain at Bantu if they meet his demands.

“I had the first stage of negotiations with the club but failed to agree on a deal though my meeting with the chairman which will inform my next step.

The winger said other clubs like LMPS and Lioli had also made enquiries but he would continue training with Tse Putsoa until he had made a decision.

“There are other clubs that have also spoken to me like Lioli, LMPS and my former team Linare. I am still exploring my options but I will continue training with Matlama.

“I really believe that Matlama will suit my style of play and might be what I need to challenge for a place in the national team.”

Tse Putsoa are on a mission to overhaul their squad having already signed goalkeeper Kananelo Makhoaoane and Ghanaian defender Patrick Nyango while releasing six players that include experienced defender, Tšeliso Ramathe.
