Cape Town - Cape Town City are set to open contract talks with star forward Bhongolwethu Jayiya after his impressive displays for the newly-formed Premiership club.

Jayiya was part of the previous Mpumalanga Black Aces franchise and was roped in as one of the best players under Muhshin Ertugral's recommendation to the Citizens' owner, John Comitis.

The 26-year-old has proven himself this season as a consistent performer in the South African top flight after a few seasons of unfulfilled potential.

Comfortable up front or on either wing, the Bidvest Wits academy graduate has made the right-wing berth his own under coach Eric Tinkler, and was an integral part of their Telkom Knockout success.

With City currently leading the Premiership with 25 points after 14 games, his agent, Glyn Binkin, confirmed talks have commenced with the club's management, ahead of the January transfer window.

"Talks have begun (with Cape Town City) and I am confident that the parties will reach an agreement on a contract extension," he told Soccer Laduma.

Jayiya has scored 21 goals and registered 11 assists in 103 Premiership games since making his debut for his former side, Bidvest Wits, in 2011.
