Cape Town - The EPL could see another South African face with reports linking Kamohelo Mokotjo with a mega-money move to England.

He may not be in favour with South Africa's national team coach, Shakes Mashaba, but that is not stopping FC Twente's Kamohelo Mokotjo from being linked with a move to the English Premiership.

Mokotjo and Mashaba were involved in a war of words after being left out of the Bafana Bafana AFCON 2015 qualifying squad.

The Mirror report that Ronald Koeman is looking at bringing Mokotjo into his Southampton squad on Monday, the English Premiership's deadline day for any transfers involving English club sides.

Koeman is well aware of Mokotjo's talents after the 23-year-old played under the Dutch manager at Feyenoord.

With his first-team opportunities limited at Feyenoord, Mokotjo sealed a move to PEC Zwolle and then finally on to FC Twente last season for just £1 million.

The English newspaper speculate that the South African midfielder would be worth £6 million in the current transfer market.

With the current Pound/Rand exchange rate (1/17.41), Mokotjo is currently valued at R104 459 570.22 - making him one of the most expensive South African players of all time.

Mokotjo has made 20 Eredivise appearances for FC Twente this season and has scored one league goal.

Mokotjo's honours:

Eredivisie Runner-up (2011/2012)
PSL Winner (2008/2009)
KNVB Beker Winner (2013/2014)
Super Cup Winner (2014/2015)
