The 35-year-old Dladla has not featured prominently for Chiefs during the current campaign, having made just one Premiership appearance for the club, against Bidvest Wits last December.
Naturally, there has been considerable speculation about his future, not just at the club, but in South African football.
"We haven't had any discussions yet regarding him and renewing his contract with Chiefs," Kapeluschnik told goal.com.
"The club is yet to open talks with us regarding the future of Josta, but I am hopeful he will be at the club given the situation he had we all know a while ago."
Kapeluschnik believes the argument about Dladla's age does not bear any scrutiny, adding this his client still had a considerable amount to offer at the Soweto giants.
"Despite his age, we believe he has a lot to offer the club, and we believe they will offer him a new deal," added the football agent.
