Cape Town - Platinum Stars have confirmed that a contract extension has been agreed in principle with experienced midfielder Robert Ng'ambi.

For the last few seasons some of the biggest clubs in the country have been after the signature of Ng'ambi, but he has remained committed to Dikwena.

Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns have failed to lure the Malawi-born marksman away from Dikwena, and he now appears to be on the verge of committing his future to the club ahead of the conclusion of the 2015/16 Absa Premiership campaign.

Coach Cavin Johnson admits that it was rare to find a footballer that can resist the temptation of joining one of the league's heavyweights.

"What I like about Robert is that we are up-front with each other and whether he wants to go or doesn't want to go, it doesn't matter," Johnson told KickOff.

"We know he's going to sign a new contract and we have agreed on that. And if things change in football you guys will be the first to know.

"Robert is a unique case for Platinum Stars and there have been a lot of people after him for long time now.

"Maybe for at least two seasons now someone wanted to buy him and someone doesn't want to buy him, someone selling him and someone not selling him.

"There has been a lot of talk around him and in respect to Robert, we've got a good relationship as a coach and the player. He has the same relationship with the management of the team."
