FC Twente coach Ron Jans has provided an update on Kamohelo Mokotjo's proposed return to the Eredivise side.

Mokotjo is currently on trial with the Dutch club ahead of a potential return to the Eredivisie and has already taken part in two pre-season friendlies, most recently featuring in a practice match against FC Nordsjaelland.

The South Africa international, who is recovering from a long-term knee injury, has been a free agent since parting ways with MLS side FC Cincinnatti last year but appears to be closing in on a permanent stay in Twente.

His performance against Nordsjaelland on Sunday, in which the club won 1-0, was another step towards that goal, and head coach Ron Jans revealed that he has been encouraged by what he has seen from the 31-year-old.

"He has been injured for a long time with a knee injury but he is now fit and has done all of the training," Jans told ESPN h/t TwenteFans. 

"In terms of him rejoining, he will have to convince us and we have to convince him if we want to, but we still have a month to do that."

"He didn't miss anything. You can see that he hasn't played for seven months, you can see that he still has some problems with the high tempo but he has absolutely not forgotten about playing football..." he concluded.

Mokotjo previously represented Twente between 2014 and 2017 where he made 105 appearances across all competitions, while he boasts 207 games to his name in Dutch football following spells with Feyenoord, Exelsior and PEC Zwolle.
