Cape Town - Free State Stars have confirmed they have entered a bid for Rodney Ramagalela, but are unsure if Mamelodi Sundowns will be willing to sell the striker.

The South African has managed just two appearances for the Brazilians this season, leading to claims he could look to engineer a move away from Chloorkop in the current transfer period.

However, with Sundowns set to enter the CAF Champions League in February, Ea Lla Koto are doubtful as to whether they could convince the Tshwane giants to part ways with Ramagalela.

"We have made a bid to get him but I think they want to keep him," Stars general manager Rantsi Mokoena told The Sowetan.

Free State Stars managed to end the first-half of the Premiership season on a high as victory over Platinum Stars prior to the holiday break lifted them one point clear of the relegation zone, and Mokoena is now hoping they can build on that momentum when the league resumes in February, while also overcoming the injury problems which derailed them along the way.

"We are hopeful to start off the second part of the season in the same way we finished the first. Our aim is to use this pre-season restart period properly and get everybody ready to go," Mokoena said.

"We never had one time during the first half of the season that we were able to pick from a full squad. Our goalkeeper, Daouda Diakite, was injured in the first game and what followed was a bit of bad luck."
