Rustenburg - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson wants attacking Botswana midfielder Mogakolodi Ngele to stay with the North West Tycoons next season.

The 24-year-old industrious playmaker is currently on a season-long loan from Mamelodi Sundowns but is likely to return to the reigning Absa Premiership champions at the end of the 2014/15 campaign.

Ngele grabbed a hat-trick for Dikwena in their 3-all stalemate against Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium last week, earning himself praise from his mentor.

Johnson confirmed to Sport24, in an exclusive interview on Friday, that it could cost them a huge sum of money if they attempt to lure “Tsotso” back on a permanent deal.   

“We can all see that Ngele is a quality player with class,” said Johnson.

“The boy is excellent and he is currently playing the best football of his career.

“But unfortunately it’s not up to me to decide on whether he will stay with us next season or not.

“He belongs to Sundowns and he is most likely to go back to them.

“We just have to wait and see how the move would go in the end.

“Unless we have enough money to keep him in our team, maybe he might stay but it will still be up to Sundowns.

“But personally, I would love to have him in the team next season.”

It remains to be seen if Ngele will still be with Stars in the 2015/16 campaign or whether he will return to the Brazilians in the off-season.
