Goal contacted his agent Miguel Paiva, who spoke exclusively to us about the Burundi international's current situation at the Belgian club.
"At the moment, its up to the club to decide his immediate future. But the PSL could be an option. Everything will be clear very soon," Paiva told Goal.
The 30-year-old former Burundi captain enjoyed his stay at Amakhosi between 2008 and 2011, winning the 2008 MTN Cup as well as the Telkom KnockOut Cup double in 2010. He was then sold to the Belgian club in 2011.
If Gent decide to offload the tall defender, he won't be short of admirers in South Africa. Current Orlando Pirates head coach Vladimir Vermezovic is a fan of Nahayo's capabilities, having coached him at Amakhosi for almost three years.
Jomo Sono at National First Division (NFD) side Jomo Cosmos would no doubt be interested in re-signing Nahayo, who spent four years with Ezenkosi before moving to Chiefs in 2008.
Lastly, SuperSport United are known to be shopping for an experienced centre-back after offloading their former captain Bevan Fransman. So a move for Nahayo is likely if the player is available.
