Cape Town - Maritzburg United playmaker Kurt Lentjies will not be leaving the club in the upcoming transfer window.
The 31-year-old midfielder was instrumental for the Team of Choice as they fought back to escape the relegation chop on the final day of the season.
Lentjies bagged nine goals and was rewarded with the Players' Player of the Season gong at the club's awards evening.
Maritzburg chairman Farook Kadodia admits that the management is not willing to let the player go.
"Kurt Lentjies had a two-year deal with us and the second year was on the basis that he played so many games," Kadodia told KickOff.
"So he basically had a good season and he has passed the number of games that was required to play so it is an automatic option that will be renewed."
