Lidoda Duvha are said to be looking to strengthen their squad in January and they are keen to bring Ntshangase back to Leopards.

“Leopards management have enquired about the services of Ntshangase as coach Luc Eymael wants to strengthen his midfield,” a source told DailySun.

“Chiefs have agreed to loan out the player until the end of the season and the deal between the two teams will be sealed prior to the festive break.”

Ntshangase’s agent Jazzman Mahlakgane claimed to be in the dark about his client’s reported loan move to Leopards.

“Chiefs haven’t told me anything and until then, my mouth is shut,” said Mahlakgane.

“What the team has told me is different. I heard from the technical staff that Ntshangase has done well in the past few weeks.

“But if there is anything else, they will let me know.”
