Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns star Thabo Nthethe says he is hopeful of continuing his Absa Premiership career by finding another club to play for in 2018/19.

Nthethe has managed just 10 PSL appearances for both Sundowns and Chippa United respectively over the last two seasons suggesting his career was coming to a close.

The 34-year-old was released by Chippa in the January transfer window though he was on the verge of signing for Baroka, before he failed a medical.

The veteran centre-back has a groin injury but is seemingly on the road to fitness as it stands. The ex-Brazilian can sign for any team outside of the transfer window as he is a free agent.

Speaking to Kickoff, the Bloemfontein-born star hinted he had no thoughts of retirement: "I'm still planning for the future.

"I do not have that pressure of having to sign [for a club] in January. I'm still planning, so we'll see how things go."

Nthethe could potentially be a valuable asset as he boasts plenty of experience of playing in South Africa's top flight since he made his debut for Bloemfontein Celtic in 2009/10.
