However, West Ham and West Brom are said to be fronting the queue to signSmallingonce the transfer window opens with both sides keen to bolster at the back. West Hamsecured the services of Jose Fonte in January, yet the Portuguese centre-back flattered to deceive at the London Stadium under Slaven Bilic, who is prepared to dip into the transfer market to bolster his defence. West Ham boss Tony Pulis has made no secret of his desire to improve the Baggies’ defence, with the club also linked with a move for John Terry.

Frosler has been a regular feature in the Bidvest Wits team that recently won the Absa Premiership title. He is one of the emerging young talents that has caught many pundits' attention and a crucial piece of the development puzzle that South Africa has been trying to piece together. Another player who arrived late and is expected to make a meaningful contribution is Teboho Mokoena from SuperSport United. Frosler has been in South Korea for four days now, trained twice with the team and has earned himself a starting berth for tomorrow's game against Italy. However, Senong is mindful of not putting too much pressure on the new arrivals: “We don’t want to put Frosler and Mokoena under pressure. They have just arrived in the team and it is important that they are used correctly. We believe in their quality and what they bring to the team. They are assets and in the right time, we will be able to use them in the team."
