Defender Thabo Nthethe is said to be facing the exit door at Mamelodi Sundowns.

The former Bloemfontein Celtic captain’s contract is set to expire at the end of June and Sundowns are yet to offer him a new contract.

Nthethe faced a similar situation last year when the two-and-a-half-year contract he signed when he joined Sundowns from Celtic in January 2014 was due to expire in June.

Sundowns then exercised the one-year option they had on his contract, thereby keeping him for one more season.

But with the 32-year-old failing to cement his place in the starting line-up, word is that he could find himself without a contract at the end of the season.

Nthethe has made 10 appearances in all competitions for Sundowns this season, making six starts and four substitute appearances in the process.
