The Siya crew has been informed that a DStv Premiership club is having a look at former Maritzburg United and Stellenbosch player Leletu Skelem, while there's also a Venezuelan and an Ivorian being assessed. 

TS Galaxy chairman Tim Sukazi previously told the Siya crew that they are in the market for a striker. The club is struggling in front of goal, with a poor record of eight goals in 17 matches, despite bringing in the likes of Bernard Parker and Sibusiso Vilakazi during the last transfer window to bolster the attack.

The 24-year-old attacker is a free agent, so Galaxy are under no pressure to sign him before the transfer window closes, but the club is looking at bringing in players as soon as possible to help with their scoring problem. Skelem can play on the wing or as a striker, which would give head coach Sead Ramovic more options if they were to sign him.
