Cape Town - Andile Jali's agent has made it clear that the Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder won't be leaving the club and remains very much a part of their plans.

Jali had limited game time at the Brazilians last season, making just 11 appearances in the PSL. This led to speculation that the 29-year-old may be moving on, but the player's representative Mike Makaab insists his client is going nowhere.

“The club has made it very clear that Andile is in their plans for the new season,” Makaab told IOL.

“Yes, he didn’t have the season that we all expected him to have at Sundowns, but I’m confident that this (2019/2020) will be his season.

“Andile is looking forward to the new season. He is still happy at Sundowns, and will work very hard to earn his place.

“The club is also still happy with his services, and all he wants to do in the new season is to display his best football.

“Andile has had a nice break. Obviously it took him some time to understand the style of play in his new team.

"Now he understands the culture of the team, and I have no doubt that he will produce his best."
