Cape Town - Cape Town City have reportedly dropped the asking price of want-away attacking midfielder Lebogang Manyama from R15.5m to R12.4m.

African champions Mamelodi Sundowns are expected to be first in line domestically to sign the prolific 26-year-old, who last season banged in 13 Premiership goals for the Citizens.

As first reported by Sport24 the player has fallen out of favour with the Cape-based club after a training ground bust-up with coach Benni McCarthy.

City's mentor later revealed that the player has been distracted by transfer rumours of a pending move away from the club.

Aside from interest from the Brazilians, Turkish side Konyaspor are also said to be in the race to land the Tembisa-born star.

While the Citizens' were previously against letting Manyama leave, it appears lowering the Bafana Bafana international's asking price is a sign they are open to offers.

With just under two days to go before the August transfer window slams shut, it remains to be seen as to whether the player will secure his desired move to another team.
