Cape Town - Bidvest Wits striker Phakamani Mahlambi looks set to stay at the club for the time being, although an overseas move still remains on the cards.

Mahlambi spent a couple of weeks with Vitoria de Guimaraes during the off-season, but recently returned to Bidvest Wits after the Portuguese top-flight side failed to offer him a contract.

There was speculation that he could sign for Mamelodi Sundowns, but the move never came to fruition by the time the domestic transfer window closed on Thursday night.

Clever Boys CEO Jose Ferreira says however that the teenaged Bafana Bafana marksman could still leave for overseas.

"There's been a lot of interest both locally and from overseas, but there's been nothing concrete for Phakamani," Ferreira said at the PSL offices on Thursday night.

"At this stage, it seems the more interesting offers are coming from overseas."

Mahlambi has also been linked with a move to Al Ahly, the Egyptian club having recently loaned out Amr Gamal to the South African league champions.
