Could This Be The Year Of Returning Players?

The transfer window is practically in full swing, with reports over players' futures constantly thrust into the media spotlight, and it seems that this year could see a host of South Africans return from abroad. Do you agree?

The transfer window will officially open on 1 July, but that hasn't stopped agents and clubs from participating in negotiation processes.

So far, both Daylon Claasen and Steven Pienaar have been linked with a return to Mzansi, and both are said to have attracted particular interest from Kaizer Chiefs.

Former Djurgardens and Ajax Cape Town midfielder Lance Davids acts as the agent to both players, who will become Bosman signings (free agents) next month, making it likely they will leave 1860 Munich and Sunderland, respectively.

Similarly, Thulani Serero is also set to see his contract with Ajax Amsterdam expire on the opening day of the transfer window, and he, too, has been linked with a return to South Africa.

"Cream" hasn't featured for Ajax's first team in over a year, but that certainly won't dissuade any potential suitors from trying to secure his signature. He is likely to be one of the most in-demand players in the PSL should he return...

Ayanda Patosi was, of course, the first player to spark the return of the players from Europe, when he was announced by Cape Town City last week as their first coup of the transfer window. Do you think others could follow suit?

Which overseas-based players are you expecting to see playing in the PSL next season?
