The 28-year-old joined the Brazilians from Orlando Pirates in 2009, but has seen a series of injuries hamper his progress with the Tshwane giants.

However, the South African was in this weekend's MultiChoice Diski Challenge quarter-final win over Polokwane City, and while he remains hopeful Sundowns will take up the two-year option in his current deal, he admits there has so far been no movement in regards to a fresh contract.

"Thus far the team haven't said anything," Mokoena, who is in the final six months of his current deal, told KickOff.

"The club has first preference and we have until the end of March to make a decision and I will see what happens from then on.

"My contract has an option of two years to renew and it will be for the team to decide whether they take it or not."

Mokoena went on to rubbish claims he is keen on a return to the Buccaneers, adding: "No, I didn't speak to the Pirates' chairman."
