The South African has been in the news recently.
“He seems to be very much of the opinion that he should come home‚ but I personally think he is good enough to play in Europe.
“Bournemouth have been asking him to come back [for pre-season] and eventually I think he will have to succumb because he is under contract with them and will start incurring heavy fines.

“At the moment he is in South Africa working in the gym‚ but that is not really good enough to stay in peak condition.
“And there are some very decent clubs in Europe who are interested in signing him‚ Leeds United being just one of them.”
However, the player has stood up for himself with force on social media today.
The 25-year-old, who has 31 caps and nine goals for the Bafana Bafana, took to social media to denounce the story and to make it clear he had no knowledge of a potential move to Leeds United.
Here are some of the tweets in question from the South African:
@TimesLIVE all you write about is pure lies don't sell story about me I don't like publicity and don't create one about me— Tokelo Rantie (@Dungi31) July 14, 2016
The news that Leeds were interested did seem surprising yesterday – considering their moves for Marcus Antonsson and Kemar Roofe already this summer.
Rantie though, was less worried with the stories of a Leeds move, and more concerned with ensuring Bournemouth fans he was not AWOL from the club and had the utmost respect for the South-Coast side.
A move to Leeds seems unlikely then for a player who has struggled with injury during his time in English football.
