Bidvest Wits defender Buhle Mkhwanazi would welcome a move overseas and doesn't feel his age prevents him from achieving that goal.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns and University of Pretoria centre-back is now 30, but takes comfort from the fact that former Bafana star Siphiwe Tshabalala was 34-year-old when he moved abroad.

Speaking to Goal, Mkhwanazi said: "You know football is funny, we saw Shabba [Tshabalala], I think he left after the age of 30 and that means anything is possible in football. It depends on the chances because you can't say I want to go or I don’t want to go.

"It all depends on situations, on what happens, and how people see you at that particular age in terms of your style of play. So, anything is possible.

"Even if I'm here, I believe it will be a good purpose to end my career in South Africa but if things say I must go then that will still be in line with the purpose of fulfilling my career."

Tshabalala joined Turkish side BB Erzurumspor in 2018 but returned to South Africa after one season after failing to agree to a new contract.
