Cape Town - Free State Stars head coach Kinnah Phiri says the club is looking to sign as many as seven players when they host a trial for some National First Division players next week.

The club's first aim is to keep hold onto in-demand striker Moeketsi Sekola, who will lift the Golden Boot at Sunday's PSL awards gala after finishing the Premiership season as top scorer with 14 goals, leading to Mamelodi Sundowns' reported interested in the player's signature.

Free State finished the Premiership season in ninth place and are looking to reinforce key areas of the side to ensure a push into the top eight next term.

"We have released the players [on holiday] now and told them to return on June 15," Phiri told on Stars' official website.

"Next week we'll be having a trial with some National First Division players who we have been keeping track on,"

"We need two goalkeepers; we need left and right fullbacks, a winger and one or two strikers.

"We had a problem with scoring goals this season and now it's time for us to sign another striker who can really score."
