“It is a short-term deal. It is for three months. Their season is in full swing so he will stay active, while we wait for the PSL season to end,” Rasool tells KickOff.com.
Rasool further clarified that the 29-year-old was not on trial at SuperSport United last month as previously reported. “It was just an extensive medical for three days. For whatever reason SuperSport didn’t take it further and that was that.
