After parting ways with the PSL rookies, Polokwane City, Luyanda Hlongwa seems to be on his way to finding a new home in Bloemfontein.
News making its way to the Siya crew is that the defender is likely to form part of the NFD side, Roses United. The club is looking at escaping relegation as they’re placed at the bottom of the standings with 15 points after 24 games.
The crew is reliably informed that the club’s new coach, Clinton Larsen, has had talks with the player and will likely bag the former City defender.
Hlongwa left 'Rise and Shine' under a cloud of controversy after he was unfairly dismissed, but won the case lodged with the PSL. He will use the opportunity to resurrect his career at the battling Bloemfontein-based side.
The crew contacted the 26-year old Umlazi-born player, who confirmed that Roses are talking to him, and that there’s something in the pipeline.
“Yeah, something is on the table that’s all I can tell you. I will join and possibly help them to escape relegation and we’ll see what happens. I did talk to coach Larsen and things are okay but I haven’t signed yet. He knows what I’m capable of and I don’t think it should be a problem working with him,” said Hlongwa.
