SuperSport United head coach Eric Tinkler says the club are weighing up various options to ensure Anthony Gordinho continues to grow as a player.
The attacking midfielder enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at University of Pretoria in the National First Division last season but has since returned to his parent club.
Gordinho, who is the brother of Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana defender Lorenzo, is currently training with Matsatsantsa but Tinkler has expressed a desire for the player to gain more experience elsewhere.
"He [Gordinho] is here with us. But we are looking at loaning him out again to other clubs," Tinkler explains to KickOff.com.
"We are currently looking at some options so he can continue getting more game time and valuable experience somewhere."
Gordinho made 21 league appearances for AmaTuks and scored three goals, amongst them a couple of absolutely world class long range strikes.
The 22-year-old has starred for SuperSport's MultiChoice Diski Challenge team in the past, an ever-present for them during the 2015/16 season where he was used exclusively as a centre-back.
Partnered at some stages of that MDC campaign with current Matsatsantsa stand-out Teboho Mokoena in the heart of the backline, SuperSport maintained the most miserly defence - conceding only 13 times during the season.
