Cape Town - Wayne Sandilands has not travelled with the rest of the Mamelodi Sundowns squad for a training camp in Mpumalanga.

According to KickOff, Sandilands reveals that he has not departed with the rest of the Brazilians for a training camp due to instructions from the club.

"Prior to the team's departure for the camp l had a series of meetings with the club,” said Sandilands.

“In one of those meetings l was instructed by a high-ranking official from the club not to travel with the team to Mpumalanga for the camp.

“So to clarify this issue, l am not absconding from duty but abiding to the instructions from the club.”

This has sparked speculation that Sandilands may be on his way out of Chloorkop as Orlando Pirates, Platinum Stars and SuperSport United will be keeping a keen eye on the availability of the 31-year-old.

Pirates were first linked with a move for Sandilands but have since curbed rumours as it seems that the Soweto outfit are keen on bringing SuperSport’s Ronwen Williams to Parktown.

However, it has also been reported that Dikwena's Siyabonga Mpontshane has raised interest from both United and Pirates which could open the door for Sandilands to move to Stars or United if Mpontshane refuses to extend his contract.
