Struggling South African side, Polokwane City FC have opened talks with Flames striker, Esau Kanyenda regarding his contract extension.
Kanyenda’s contract with the club expires in June, and there are speculations in the local and international press linking him with a move away from the South Africa side. The player has since dismissed the reports.
Polokwane spokesperson, Tumelo Makgoala, Thursday confirmed that discussions are underway with the former Dwanga United forward.
“There are talks with him to see what will happen at the end of the season, but I don’t want to say much on the issue now,” Makgoala said.
Makgoala praised the former Jomo Cosmos striker, who is regarded as one of Malawi’s best football exports in recent years having played in the Uefa Champions League while at Lokomotiv Moscow in Russia.
“He is well-disciplined,” he added.
Kanyenda, who was not available for a comment on Thursday, recently said he wants to remain at the club amid indications that he might be given a new role upon retirement.
Kanyenda has netted a single goal for the 13th placed Polokwane in the Absa Premiership this season. Polokwane have 21 points from 18 games.
At the peak of his career, Kanyenda had stints with Russian sides, Rostov FC, Kamaz FC and Moscow.
He was also part of the historical Flames squad that qualified for 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.
