Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune admits he cannot rule out leaving Kaizer Chiefs for another club in the Premiership, but insists his first preference would be a move to Europe.

The South Africa international is currently in the final few months of his deal at Naturena, although talks over a new contract have been open for some time.

However, nothing has yet been agreed by the two parties, leaving Khune's future open for debate, and the 'keeper admits that in football, anything is possible.

"I wouldn't say [joining a rival team] is not an option, but I wouldn't want to entertain other clubs more because I am still contracted to Kaizer Chiefs," Khune told KickOff.

"Obviously [in order of preference] it is Chiefs then Europe, but if that doesn't materialise then I will have to consider other options.

"But I liked what Oupa Manyisa said... 'football is business'. I think it is about time footballers tell the truth."

The 27-year-old goalkeeper has 220 caps to his name at the Amakhosi since taking the role as number one goalkeeper at the club in the 2007/2008 season.
