The former Mbabane Swallows’ star, who joined Platinum Stars last season and is still registered to them, did not see much action in Miguel Gamondi’s team and asked to be transferred during the off-season.
“I was very impressed with Wonder’s performance,” Barker told the Swaziland Observer.
“I have recommended him to the team management. From what I have heard negotiations with Platinum Stars are going well. I have made it clear to management that I need him to beef up the squad with his experience.
“We are negotiating to have him on a one-season loan as Stars has also made it clear that they were not willing to sell him outright,” Barker added.
Nhleko, once a regular in Sihlangu SeMnikati has not featured in national colours for over a year now due his lack of action in South Africa.
