Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane says he is in the process of signing a player 'from South Africa' but not from former club Mamelodi Sundowns.
Mosimane is fresh from his CAF Champions League final win over Kaizer Chiefs and busy preparing his squad for the new Egyptian Premier League season.
He has repeatedly been linked with Orlando Pirates striker Thembinkosi Lorch and Downs attacker Gaston Sirino but ruled out signing both players.
Mosimane told SAFM: "There's a player that will come from South Africa.
"It's not Lorch or Sirino but the player will come. He's not from my former team [Mamelodi Sundowns] because I don't want to touch those players because they take me to court.
"I'd like a South African player to come here, but I don't want to ruffle feathers. I want to do it the right way. You know what happened with Sirino.
"They said I'm stripping my former team, even though Ahly wanted him before I came here."
