Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe will be available to play for the the Highveld Lions next season.

Lions coach Geoffrey Toyana confirmed the news to the Beeld website.

Tsotsobe, 29, has a national contract and can therefore "pick" where he wants to play. It will be his third franchise in as many seasons.

Tsotsobe surprisingly left the Warriors to join the Dolphins at the start of the 2012/13 season. His move to the Lions appears to be just as sudden as when the left the Warriors.

Dolphins CEO Jesse Chellan said he was never informed about Tsotsobe's plans.

"I saw in the recent statement announcing that Alviro Petersen will replace Graeme Smith for the Champions Trophy that Tsotsobe was being mentioned as a Lions player," said Chellan.
