One of Mamelodi Sundowns’ defenders is believed to be unhappy with his situation at the Chloorkop-based club, this according to Siya sources.
It was reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma that Sundowns are yet to confirm whether or not the club will be extending the stay of Thabo Nthethe who is currently in the final year of his contract with the Brazilians.
However, Siya sources have since informed the crew that the 33-year-old is believed to be unhappy with his situation at Sundowns, currently frustrated with his lack of game-time at the club.
Sources have added that the player is keen on a move away from Masandawana, should the opportunity to leave the Chloorkop-based club arise in the upcoming January transfer window.
Nthethe has been influential in the success of the Brazilians since joining up with the team from Bloemfontein Celtic in 2014.
However, the centre back has since fallen down the pecking order and despite Nthethe being on the wrong side of 30, he is still eager to play and indications are that he will not see regular game-time at the Chloorkop-based club at this point.
Sundowns currently have centre backs Motjeka Madisha, Bangaly Soumahoro and Wayne Arendse ahead of Nthethe on the pecking order, with Rivaldo Coetzee also yet to make his official debut for the club.
Nthethe will be able to sign a pre-contract with any interested suitor when he enters the final six months of his contract come January next year and subsequently leave on a free at the end of his deal on June 30 of 2018.
