Bloemfontein Celtic have emerged as the favourites to land midfielder Sipho Moeti from Baroka FC.
Moeti is set to leave Bakgaga when his contract with the club expires at the end of June.
The 26-year-old has decided against extending his stay with the Limpopo-based outfit, which narrowly survived relegation from the Absa Premiership for a second straight season following their promotion from the National First Division.
According to a source close to Moeti, Celtic is the player's likely next destination.
"Sipho is not renewing his contract with Baroka," says the informant.
"He is leaving the club at the end of the season. He is still weighing up a few options. There is also an offer from Celtic."
Baroka CEO Morgan Mammila confirmed Moeti is no longer part of their plans.
"Yes, it's true. He is no longer part of our plans for next season."
