Cape Town - Polokwane City midfielder Cole Alexander insists he has not heard from Kaizer Chiefs amid reported interest from the defending Premiership champions.

The 26-year-old has entered the final six months of his contract at Rise and Shine, and is free to speak to other clubs about a move in the off-season.

Alexander insists he is happy at Peter Mokaba Stadium, having started 10 of the club's 14 games in the league this season.

However, he admits to be looking for a better deal in order to provide for his family, although the former Ajax Cape Town player denied rumours that Amakhosi had made contact over a potential future transfer.

"Yes, I heard about those rumours but there's nothing concrete, I only read about them in the papers," he told KickOff.

"No one has called me or told me anything about that.

"I'm playing at the moment, so I'm happy at Polokwane for now. But I'm still talking to the club, we are still in talks [regarding a new contract]. We are waiting on the club and my manager is the one who would know more.

"Any player or footballer wants to secure a good deal for his family's future. At this stage of my career I'm thinking about a better deal, not only for me but also for my family.

"Whatever is best for me and my family that's the route I'm going. A football career is really short, so if I can get a good contract I can support my family, that's the most important thing."
