After months of speculations sorrounding his future at Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Maritzburg United, Kenyan international defender Brian Mandela has confirmed that United's league rivals Mamelodi Sundowns are interested in acquiring his services.
Mandela who affirms that he is still a Maritzburg player however failed to confirm if he will be with his current club when the transfer window shuts at the end of August.
"We'll see what happens,” Onyango is quoted as telling South African football portal, KickOff when asked about his future. “But at the moment I'm here. I have a contract running until 2019 so I'm a player of Maritzburg United.
"But of course, Mamelodi Sundowns did approach the club, not me. They spoke to the club, not me. I didn't have any contact with the guys there [at Sundowns].”
“I'm still here. I love Maritzburg, but whatever happens, it'll happen.”
Mandela joined Maritzburg from Santos in the 2015/16 season. Maritzburg and Sundowns are set to meet on Sunday 13 August in the MTN8 quarterfinals at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Mandela scored against Sundowns in the penultimate game of the league last season.
