As The South African website reported on Tuesday, the 26-year-old from Soweto secured a loan deal to play for Gavin Hunt SuperSport United.

“He is still a youngster, so he needs game time to grow, and a new striker is arriving from Cameroon. For that striker to get a chance, it means Lepasa will have to continue being a fringe player.

“So, it’s a good move for him. It’s not the end of the road for Lepasa, and it’s not the first time he’s been loaned out. All he needs is game time and to play as much as he can.
