Mumuni is set to spend two weeks with Matsatsantsa in the hope of impressing coach Tembo and his technical team.

Tembo has watched Mumuni play but wanted to invite him to South Africa to closely assess him during pre-season training.

"I have watched him play, he joined us a few days ago," Tembo tells KickOff.com.

"I know what he is capable of but the most important thing is to adapt to the way we are doing things and that's why we invite players on trial, to see if they can adapt in our environment.

"He scored goals for his team. He is a top striker at Ashanti Gold. We still have about two weeks [to look at him] and we will take it from there."

Matsatsantsa have parted ways with a number of players including James Keene, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Morgan Gould to name a few, and the club is looking for replacements.

"We lost about seven players. We need to add a little bit of quality in terms of depth, which we don't have at the moment. We still have options. We will announce in due course once the negotiations are concluded."
