Free State Stars midfielder Luyolo Nomandela is back in Bethlehem with the rest of his teammates, despite being linked with a move away from the club.
Nomandela has been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs again in this January transfer window, as it was the situation after his first season in the PSL in the 2012/13 campaign.
“We started today. I’m in Bethlehem. I am here and I haven’t heard anything,” Nomandela told the Siya crew.
Stars have returned to Free State to prepare for business in 2014, as the side will be hoping for a better run this year.
Ea Lla Koto had a terrible run of seven losses, four draws and just three wins in 14 league games played by the team in 2013.
The team moved down to 15th on the Absa Premiership log, despite replacing Steve Komphela with Themba Sithole and Kinnah Phiri in the technical team last year.
Nomandela has made just five starts for the side so far this season, and last played in the 1-0 win over Polokwane City in November.
