Cape Town - Richards Bay coach Brandon Truter says Thamsanqa Sangweni wants a return to the Absa Premiership though the club has an agreement he remains with them should he not win a move.

The midfielder had a sudden fall from grace after making his name with Chippa United earlier in his career.

He then followed in the footsteps of his retired brother Siyabonga in joining Orlando Pirates, though his career began to fizzle out with the Sea Robbers.

After rejoining Chippa in 2018/19 he was released in January before finding his way to Richards Bay in the National First Division, where he made six league appearances in total.

Truter told KickOff: "We are still looking to retain a few players. The movement is very slow on our side, but we will see. Look, Thami's first choice is to go to the PSL.

"If nothing happens then he said we would retain him and hopefully keep him for next season.

"But his first priority is the PSL, so we are not sure at this stage but we have agreed terms should he not find a PSL club."

The outfit from KwaZulu-Natal finished last season in a respectable seventh position.
