However, a move to Rustenburg now remains likely with the club believed to have tabled an offer for Hayford.
Hayford has reportedly arrived in Phokeng and he is under the watchful eye of coach Peter Butler, and it is believed that he is considering a move to South Africa.
Hayford spent almost a decade at Spurs before moving to Sheffield Wednesday in 2016, and has been part of their under-21 squad.
It should also be noted that if Stars are to sign Hayford, he is considered eligible to be registered as a South African due to his father having been born in the country.
Nonetheless, there remains no clarity on the youngster’s future as he is yet to make his mind up.
