Midfielders Mpho Matsi, Mpho Mosadi and striker Thabo Mnyamane are on the shopping lists of a number of top clubs in the top flight.

The trio was integral for AmaTuks in the past season, and their top notch performances have not gone unnoticed.

Matsi’s contract with AmaTuks is expiring and Troughton revealed the player is expected to make a decision on his future this week, while the club have already lost striker Geoffrey Massa to Bloemfontein Celtic.

"We are hoping to keep 80% of our players but we will know in the next coming days what will really happen," Troughton told Football411.

"Obviously we would like to keep all of them, but this is football and it will be up to the players to decide at the end of the day.

"Massa we have already lost, but we knew with him during the season that he has made the decision to leave before hand it didn’t come as a surprise.

"The management team has been working hard to ensure that we keep our best players and to see if we can add experience to the squad."
