Cape Town - Out-of-favour Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder George Lebese is reportedly being monitored by Wits and Cape Town City ahead of a potential move in January.

The 29-year-old is yet to make an Absa Premiership appearance for the Brazilians in 2018/19.

As such, the player and his agent Steve Kapeluschnik have met with the club and expressed a desire to seek a loan or permanent move elsewhere during the January transfer window.

According to KickOff website source, the forward as well as Anthony Laffor and Soumahoro Bangaly are also set to be farmed out in 2019.

The source told the publication: "There is interest from both Cape Town City and Bidvest Wits for George Lebese.

"Formal talks are expected to resume before the Christmas break. It's not only George Lebese on his way out but also Anthony Laffor and Bangaly."

Last week, Lebese confirmed that he is seeking a move away from the club after not featuring so far this season.

"To be quite honest I can't really understand what happened‚" Lebese said as quoted by TimesLIVE website.

"I was able to improve anything they told me to. So, I can happily look at myself in the mirror and say that I've tried everything.

"It’s just that it didn't work out. As to pointing out what it was‚ I am clueless - I don't know."
