Pellegrini is also looking to strengthen his squad and has suggested there may be transfer news imminent, although he is not certain and did not discuss specific targets.

He said: "We don't know at this moment who is going to come here.

"We are trying to bring the best players into our squad. I am always open to young players, and to good players.

"I don't know if anything will happen before we leave South Africa, but maybe the next day we will have fresh news."
