Lentjies has been a regular feature for the Team of Choice this term and expressed his desire to remain at the club for the foreseeable future.

"Yes, my contract is coming to an end at the end of this season but we are negotiating and we will see what we can work out between me and the club," Lentjies told KickOff.

"Of course I want to stay and which player doesn't want to play in the Top 8?

"What's the use of going down and joining another team that is not in the top eight? I want to stay, no doubt about that."

Maritzburg secured eighth place with a 2-1 win over AmaZulu on Saturday, the first time in the club's history they have finished in the top half, and has heaped praise on coach Steve Komphela.
