Cape Town - Agent Miguel Paiva admits that there is a possibility that his client Ramahlwe Mphahlele could leave Mamelodi Sundowns.

Speculation has been rife that Mphahlele is on his way out of Sundowns to join Absa Premiership rivals Kaizer Chiefs.

With his contract expiring at the end of June, the Sundowns skipper is reportedly considering a shock move to Naturena. However, Paiva has refused to confirm or deny reports of an imminent move to Chiefs.

"I have no comment on that matter, it is still as is for now," Paiva told Goal website.

"I am not speaking to anyone on that matter, if anything has to be announced, it will be done at the right time by the right club. There is nothing new for now...it is really sensitive."

Mphahlele could make his last appearance for Sundowns when they face ES Setif of Algeria in the group stages of the CAF Champions League on 18 June.
