South Africa international Themba Zwane will be staying with Mamelodi Sundowns for the foreseeable future despite reports that both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are keen on his services. 

The 28-year-old in into the final year of his contract with the Brazilians, but according to his agent, Jazzman Mahlakgane, the player will sign on the dotted line next week.  

“I think next week we will be done. Mshishi is staying with Sundowns. He is not going anywhere. He is still happy at Sundowns, and that’s why he will renew his contract with the club,” Mahlakgane told Indepedent Media.

Mahlakgane further revealed that there are no European offers for Zwane, who expressed his desire to move abroad in the near future.

“There’s no offer or interest from European clubs at the moment," confirmed Mahlakgane. 

“Overseas is not everything. Mshishi can’t go to the UK because Bafana Bafana are not well-ranked. So where does he go if he is not going to the UK?" asked the agent.

“He is 28 and will be turning 29. We need to be realistic. The player needs to be financially stable, and sometimes growth doesn’t mean you must go overseas,” Mahlakgane concluded.
