Stars release Belgian striker, welcome Judas

The 26-year-old failed to score in 10 outings for Ea Lla Koto following his arrival from third-tier Belgian outfit Patro Eisden midway through last season.

"He didn't adapt to the level of the PSL," says Stars coach Luc Eymael of his compatriot.

"You know when you are a foreigner you don't have to spend time on the bench or the stands."

Meanwhile, fellow forward Judas Moseamedi looks to have completed his loan switch to the Nedbank Cup champions from Cape Town City. His move to Bethlehem comes soon after targetman Siphelele Mthembu defected from Stars to the Citizens.

Moseamedi featured for Eymael's side in a friendly with SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on the weekend.

Stars also recently signed Congolese midfielder Cesaire Gandze as a replacement for Nhlanhla Vilakazi, who joined AmaZulu at the end of last season.

Midfielders Mumuni Abubakar and Sello Japhta have been transfer-listed in Bethlehem, while former Orlando Pirates attacker Mahlatse Makudubela has stopped training under Eymael as he looks set for a trial in the Czech Republic.
