According to reports, the Khayelitsha-born player had a problem with his visa for re-entry into Belgium after playing for Bafana Bafana in their 1-1 draw against Mozambique in Maputo last Tuesday.
Patosi did not feature at all for Lokeren last weekend, and according to TMG Digital, his coach Rúnar Kristinsson wants him to now work on his own away from the main group.
The 24-year-old, who is now in his sixth season with Lokeren, has made only six starts in the 15 matches the club has played in the league this season.
This has raised speculation that he could be on his way out at Lokeren.
