Free State Stars are interested in signing Deon Hotto but they can't locate the Namibian.
Hotto's two-year contract with Bloemfontein Celtic is expiring in June.
"We haven’t signed him," Stars general manager Rantsi Mokoena tells KickOff.com.
"We are looking for him and now he has disappeared ... I don’t know where he is. He hasn’t responded and he’s also not picking up his phone, but I spoke to him.
"With this being the case, I won’t pull out but I mean I can’t find him so I can’t talk to him," he adds of the 27-year-old, who starred in the Brave Warriors' COSAFA Cup triumph in Rustenburg in 2015.
Hotto, who can operate at left-back and in an advanced role, played all of Celtic's league matches this season, scoring once against his former club Golden Arrows in January.
The Swakopmund-born player made 35 appearances in all competitions for the Telkom Knockout finalists in 2017/18.
