Mokotjo to return to former club?

SA Players Abroad

Kamohelo Mokotjo appears set to make a sensational return to a former club after seemingly parting ways with Major League Soccer side FC Cincinnati. 

South Africa international Kamohelo Mokotjo could make a return to the Dutch Eredivisie in the coming weeks after being invited to return to former club FC Twente.

The 30-year-old, who is set to undergo a medical on Thursday, was most recently on the books of MLS side FC Cincinnati but is no longer contracted to the club, according to Twente technical director, Jan Streuer.

"Maybe it will be one hundred percent, and maybe not. We are in no rush because he has no contract. We're going to take a look at it calmly," Streuer told Dutch publication Tubantia.

"But we don't know how they will go with a view to next season. That remains to be seen. Mokotjo is a good player and we will now see how fit he is."

Mokotjo previously spent three seasons with Twente between 2014 and 2017 where he made 105 appearances for the club across all competitions, before joining Brentford and Cincinnati in subsequent campaigns.

He made 22 appearances in two seasons with the latter and, although he held a guaranteed contract for the 2022 MLS season, it appears as though his future now lies away from the United States.
