Players Who Could Earn Moves After Olympics

Most of Owen da Gama's men will see the Olympics as a platform to earn moves elsewhere in Mzansi and even abroad, but who do you think will do enough to earn a transfer?

The South African U23 side will get their Olympic campaign under way against Brazil on 4 August, when they'll face Barcelona's Neymar and a host of aspiring talent.

Amaglug-glug have already been tipped to progress past the group stages, and if they manage to put in a good showing, the players may catch some scouts' attention.

Here are four players who could earn a move in the January transfer window if they do well at the Olympics.

Keagan Dolly
The Mamelodi Sundowns man enjoyed an impressive campaign with the Brazilians, seeing him being crowned a PSL champion for the first time. Still only 23, Dolly's future looks bright and if he lives up to his potential, he may attract the interest of European clubs.

Lorenzo Gordinho
The Kaizer Chiefs defender has already been tipped to sport the Amakhosi armband one day, but if he continues to grow from strength to strength in the manner he has so far, he could fancy his chances of a move to Europe. The Benoni-born star also has a European passport, which would make the transition all the more easier.

Jody February
While he may need more experience in the PSL to earn a move abroad, Jody February has proved to be a force in the Ajax Cape Town youth squad. The teenager played an instrumental role in helping the Urban Warriors lift two international trophies back in May and if he shines at the Olympics, he may grab the attention of other clubs.

Lebogang Phiri
He may be playing for Brondby right now, but if he excels with the South African team, he could definitely earn himself a move to another European club. Phiri is the highest valued player in this squad, according to Transfermarkt, and a solid campaign may just see his asking price soar.
