Bafana Bafana midfielder Lerato Chabangu has confirmed to Goal that he is staying put at Moroka Swallows despite his team's failure to qualify for the top eight this term.

Chabangu's contract with Swallows will expire in June 2015, and several PSL clubs, including Platinum Stars, are reported to be interested in signing him, but the former Sundowns man said that leaving Zeca Marques' side has never crossed his mind.

"The team hasn't been doing well recently, but leaving the club hasn't crossed my mind," Chabangu told Goal. "No team has contacted me, and besides I'm happy here," he added.

Chabangu has had a successful career at Swallows, winning the MTN 8 with them a season after finishing second behind Orlando Pirates on the PSL log.

He made a remarkable comeback to professional football after dealing with his off-field issues that nearly brought an end to his playing career.
