Khumalo joined Spurs from SuperSport United, but has so far been unable to break into the first team squad and spent some time on loan at Preston North End in the Championship before injury struck him down.
Redknapp, speaking ahead of the 2011 Vodacom Challenge Final at Coca-Cola Park against Orlando Pirates, says it’s very like that Khumalo, who has been linked with Glasgow Rangers and Bristol City, will spend this season away from White Hart Lane.
“Possibly Bongani could go out as he needs experience,” Redknapp says. “Look, it’s a new way of life for him in England, and this will be his first full season here.
“Several clubs have made enquiries about signing him on loan. And he needs to play … he can’t just sit on the bench the whole time. He’s not going to be starting, so the best option is for him to go on loan and get some experience.”
Meanwhile, Redknapp confirms that Steven Pienaar will play some part in tomorrow’s Final. ‘Schillo’ has not tasted any action yet as he works he way back from injury, but it seems he will now at least get some game-time in South Africa.
“I’m hoping Steven is fit to start,” Redknapp says. “I would like for him to play here in his home country. He has had problems with injury, but I’m looking to give him at least 45 minutes tomorrow.”
