Mamelodi Sundowns forward Lebohang Mokoena looks set to extend his stay at the club when his contract expires at the end of June this year.

'Cheeseboy' as he is affectionately known in Mzansi, has won Pitso Mosimane's heart since his recovery from an injury that kept him out of action for over a year.

Sundowns' Kabelo Mosito told Goal that they are yet to engage in talks with Mokoena, but he is hopeful that the matter will be discussed at the end of the season.

"Cheeseboy is enjoying his football at the moment, and I cannot lie to you about the issue of contracts at the moment," Mosito told Goal. "I am sure this will be discussed at the end of the season," he said.

The former Orlando Pirates attacker scored the winner during Sundowns' league match against AmaTuks on Sunday as the Brazilians continue to push for their first PSL title in seven years.

A few PSL clubs are reportedly eyeing Mokoena, but it doesn't look like any of them will get his signature, especially with Sundowns doing so well in the league this season.
