Lekone has spent more than a week in Rustenburg trying out with Stars and his performance caught the eye of coach Miguel Gamondi.
However, the Argentinian mentor tells KickOff.com that they will only consider taking a second look at Lekone next season.
“Lekone has done well since arriving here. I like him and was impressed with performance at training. However, he has not played football for long time and is still struggling with his fitness.
“It will be useless bringing in a player now who will be still trying to regain his fitness for the next six months. I currently have enough players in the midfield and will only consider giving him another chance next season.”
