Tso was a firm fan favourite in his heyday while playing for the Buccaneers and was capped 31 times for the national team.

His exploits earned him a move to Europe, however he returned to South Africa after a short stint with AaB Aalborg in Denmark to join Mamelodi Sundowns.

The 33-year-old was subsequently loaned out to Mpumalanga Black Aces by the Brazilians and then joined Black Leopards for the 2011/12 season. That was the last time Tso played in Mzansi as he went on to spend some time playing in Swaziland (Malanti Chiefs) and Botswana (Notwane FC & Botswana Meat Commission).

It now appears as though the veteran midfielder is looking to make a return to the PSL and Siya sources have revealed that the player is in good shape.

The crew has further been informed that Tso would be open to doubling up as a player as well as an assistant coach.

With the likes of Jomo Cosmos, Maritzburg United and University of Pretoria all set to scrap it out in the relegation battle, Vilakazi could be called on to add depth and experience to their respective squads.

Vilakazi still holds the record for the most goals scored for Ezika Magebhula, having notched up 58 goals in 170 appearances for the Mayfair outfit.
