SuperSport United have shrugged off any interest in talented midfielder, Teboho Mokoena, confirming an interesting clause in his new contract at the club.
The Siya crew previously reported that 23-year-old was closing in on a new deal that would see him commit his future to SuperSport amid interest from the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, and it has now been announced that he has put pen to paper on a deal until 2023.
Mokoena has come on leaps and bounds since making his SuperSport debut under Stuart Baxter in 2016, becoming a key part of Kaitano Tembo’s side as the side continue to push for South African silverware.
Matsatsantsa’s official Twitter account confirmed the news, saying, “SuperSport United is pleased to announce that Teboho Mokoena has signed a three-and a half-year extension which will see him represent Matsatsantsa until 2023… Matthews also confirmed that he did provide an “Olympic buy-out” clause that would enable the player to secure a permanent international move post the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.”
Meanwhile, the club’s CEO added, “We are very pleased with the strides that Tebza made since joining us as a teenager… His best years are ahead of him and I’m delighted that he has extended his contract."
Mokoena is expected to be part of David Notoane’s Olympic side that travels to Tokyo later this year, and his new contract could mean that a move outside of Mzansi’s shores could be on the cards if he manages to impress in Japan.
