“I think for him it’s all about looking to his future now. He has been getting calls from a lot of clubs, particularly in Gauteng and I think that is where he will be heading next season. I know about Kaizer Chiefs, but Orlando Pirates are also in the picture.

“To be honest, those are not the only clubs after him. He had a decent season and you know in the PSL when a player from a small team does well, many clubs will be looking to sign him. I just hope he makes a good choice,” said the source.
