The departure of Sebastien Migne could open the door for a midfielder to finally break into the starting line-up at Marumo Gallants.
Siphelele Ntshangase signed for Gallants a few months ago after leaving Kaizer Chiefs before the end of last season, but the 28-year-old midfielder is yet to make an appearance for the side, in both the DStv Premiership and CAF Confederation Cup.
The Siya crew has been led to believe that the now dismissed Migne was not impressed that Gallants went ahead and signed Ntshangase, even though he did not make a recommendation for the club to acquire his services.
The former Black Leopards and Baroka midfielder spent quite a number of weeks on trial with the club before a decision was made to finally sign the player.
Former Orlando Pirates defender Tshepo Gumede is another player still waiting to make his first appearance for the club.
As things stand, Gallants are expected to have technical director Harris Choeu, as well as Mpho Maleka, on the bench for their upcoming clash in the Confederation Cup against DRC outfit AS Vita Club.
Gallants, meanwhile, are second from bottom on the premiership standings.
The Siya crew has previously reported that Gallants are in talks with Dan Malesela and Duncan Lechesa, while Owen da Gama is also a candidate. The club is looking to go for a local coach to help them avoid relegation.
