Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lebohang Mokoena has confirmed he will part ways with the Brazilians at the end of June.

Mokoena's contract with Sundowns is set to expire on June 30, and although he has not yet decided on his next move, the 29-year-old feels it is time to look elsewhere.

"I met with the club and they allowed me the chance to move on next season," he told KickOff.

"I am grateful to the club president, the technical team and management for giving me a chance to be part of the Sundowns family.

"I won't forget my team-mates and the fans for such wonderful support all these years. I leave Sundowns a happy man. I enjoyed my stay at the club and as I said I am grateful for the opportunity I got to play for a big team like Sundowns.

"I am looking forward to starting life elsewhere next season. I am still 29 years old. I still want to win championships. I have achieved a lot of things in football but I am still hungry to achieve more.

"I guess everyone is on a break. I am waiting for my manager to come back to me and plan a way forward."
