Cape Town - Free State Stars head coach Luc Eymael says the likes of Edward Manqele and Mohammed Anas could be sold if the right offers come in.

Stars have been the surprise package in the league this season and moved into second spot on the standings, three points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after a 1-0 victory over Cape Town City last weekend.

As such, their top performers, including Anas and Manqele, have both been linked with a move away from the club in the transfer window, with Chippa United and Bidvest Wits both thought to be interested.

And Eymael believes that if the players' hearts are not with Ea Lla Koto, it could make sense to cash in on them.

"I will never force a player to remain at my club who is not 200 percent committed to the team‚" Eymael said as quoted by the TimesLIVE website.

"I have discussed with the chairman (Mike Mokoena) and we said yes‚ if the players can earn more money elsewhere and if we can make a good deal‚ then we should let them go.

"They have been contacted by other teams‚ this is a fact‚ but we have not received official contact and until then‚ there is no decision to make on whether they stay or go," he added.

The club signed Congo-Brazzaville marksman Harris Tchilimbou last week and are also expected to announce the arrival of Amido Balde, another striker, who has played in Scotland, Portugal‚ Israel‚ Belgium and France.
