Mamelodi Sundowns' Edward Manqele looks set to leave the club either this month or at the end of this season, according to a source close to the player.
Manqele is on the wanted list of Kaizer Chiefs who are looking to sign him as soon as possible ahead of their Caf Champions League campaign in February, and Goal's source close to the South African international reveals that Manqele has made up his mind about leaving the Brazilians.
"I have been speaking to Jabu since Chiefs said they want him and believe me, he has made up his mind," a source close to Manqele told Goal.
"I don't think Sundowns will keep Jabu if he's not happy there when they have so many stars. So I think he will definitely move," added our source.
The 26-year-old Manqele committed himself to a long term contract with Sundowns when he moved from Free State Stars in 2012, but he then failed to replicate his form at the Chloorkop-based outfit.
Earlier this season he was loaned out to Moroka Swallows, who are also determined to have him on a permanent basis, although moving to Chiefs could be on his mind right now.
Manqele is also wanted by both Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United although Matsatsantsa could pull out of the race, now that they have signed Lehlohonolo Majoro from Kaizer Chiefs.
