Platinum Stars coach Roger de Sa says speedy winger Katlego Otladisa has linked up with Mamelodi Sundowns.
Sundowns signed Otladisa and fullback Siyabonga Zulu in January, but loaned the former back to Dikwena for the rest of the season.
Otladisa has not played since breaking his foot in training in December 2017.
However, Downs have decided to bring the 21-year-old to Chloorkop to help him acclimatise ahead of the new campaign.
"Otladisa is a Sundowns player," says De Sa, whose side will campaign in the National First Division next term following their relegation from the topflight.
"He’s injured. He broke his leg in the first week of January.
"He’s actually moved to Sundowns now because they wanted him to start training there, getting used to the Jo’burg life.
"But if he doesn’t make the team he’ll probably come back to us on loan, that was the agreement we struck when they signed him.
"So ja, we’ll see what happens with him. Hopefully he’s okay and plays for Sundowns. If he doesn’t, we could make use of him. Sundowns have enough players, more than anybody else."
Otladisa scored once in 10 games in all competitions in 2017/18, having made his PSL debut against the Brazilians in October last year.
