NDABAYITHETHWA Ndlondlo revealed the decision on his future with Marumo Gallants will be decided after the Nedbank Cup final.
Gallants will defend the Ke Yona Cup trophy they won last year when they cross swords with Mamelodi Sundowns in the final at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Saturday (6pm).
The 26-year-old midfielder has been in good form this season, helping Gallants finish in 10th spot in the DStv Premiership. The former AmaZulu player has been consistent for the past two seasons.
And after failing to secure Ndlondlo’s signature at the end of last season, the Gauteng powerhouses, Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Downs are linked again with the Gallants star.
But Durban rivals Royal AM and AmaZulu have also been mentioned as possible destinations for Ndlondlo.
“I’m a Gallants player and I’m happy here,” said Ndlondlo.
“I don’t know anything about clubs that are after me. But one thing I know is that if there’s any interest in me, we will talk after the Nedbank Cup final.
“But if a team wants me, the offer needs to be good for the club (Gallants) and me. But for now, my focus is to help Gallants defend the Nedbank Cup again and we’ll talk about my future after the final.”
But Bahlabane Ba Ntwa will find it difficult to keep Ndlondlo as he is left with only one season on his contract, and the best move for Gallants boss Ditonkana Sello could be to cash in now rather than losing their hot property for free at the end of next season.
On their clash with the high-flying Brazilians, Ndlondlo added: “It’s going to be a very technical game because both teams are good at keeping the ball.
“We are looking forward to defending our cup. I am positive because of the atmosphere I’ve seen in the team.
“The spirit is very high and the new guys want to lift this trophy and be part of this club’s history.”
