Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lebohang Mokoena has been linked with a move to the Middle East.

The 29-year-old recently left the Brazilians after not seeing regular first-team action during his time at Chloorkop.

'Cheeseboy' was once regarded as one of the brightest prospects in local football. However, he made just 40 starts in his last six seasons with Sundowns.

Last season was particularly difficult for the five-cap Bafana Bafana international as he made just three league substitute appearances for Pitso Mosimane's side.

Nonetheless, despite no longer being considered a first-team regular with the reigning league champions,  they were reportedly keen to exercise a one-year contract extension to keep Mokoena.

However, the attacking midfielder refused the offer, citing his desire to get regular football at another club. Now it appears the former Orlando Pirates youth product could be looking at a move abroad to the Middle East.

Mokoena also confirmed that there are options available to him in the Premiership as well, telling Soccer Laduma: "I think my agent, Mike Makaab, is working on something in the Middle East or locally, so let's wait and see what happens in the next couple of days."
