Deolin Mekoa, constantly linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs, says he wants to stay at Maritzburg United for one more season.

The 23 year-old had a superb 2015/16 season with Maritzburg and also impressed for South Africa at Rio 2016. That is only likely to increase the appetite of clubs chasing his signature.

“That is a question I can’t really answer right now,” said Mekoa, when asked if he would leave United.

“At the moment I am staying at Maritzburg, I am not going anywhere, I would like to stay one more season and then move on.”
