Among them is Cape Town-born midfielder Mihlali Mayambela, who completed a loan move to Portuguese second division side Academica de Coimbra from Primeira Liga outfit Farense, and recently made his debut in a 2-1 league win over Academico Viseu.

The 24-year-old has spent the past five years playing across Europe, having enjoyed spells in Sweden, Portugal and Israel, and will now be looking to hit the ground running with his new side in the second half of the season.

Elsewhere, Bafana Bafana international Liam Jordan completed a transfer to Danish outfit Helsingor after spending the previous three seasons with domestic rivals HB Koge.

Jordan, son of former Manning Rangers star Keryn Jordan, started his career with Bidvest Wits before joining the academy at Sporting Lisbon. He then moved to Denmark, where he made nearly 100 appearances for Koge.

Staying in Europe, former Swiss youth international Joel Untersee signed with Finnish outfit HJK Helsinki, while Republic of Ireland youngster Corrie Ndaba move to Ayr United in Scotland in a loan deal from Ipswich Town. Both players are believed to be eligible to represent South Africa.

South Africa's contingent of players in the United States has also grown after Lindo Mfeka signed for Oakland Roots, joining the likes of George Lebese, Lebo Moloto and Tumi Moshobane in the USL Championship.
