Cape Town - Chippa United defender Nkosinathi Mthiyane has confirmed several Premiership clubs are interested in acquiring his services.

Mthiyane joined the Chilli Boys from AmaZulu at the beginning of the recently concluded campaign, making over 30 appearances in all competitions.

His imposing performances helped Dan Malesela's team to a top-eight finish for the first time in their history and prompted rumours of a possible move away from Port Elizabeth.

"There have been talks of Wits, Celtic and many other teams like Pirates. They have made an approach and Mpumalanga Black Aces - although they are now sold - but those are the teams interested," Mthiyane told KickOff.

"What comes to my mind is that maybe there is something good I'm doing and I have to strengthen that and, not because those teams want me, but because they see something good I'm doing on the field. It has regenerated me to continue to play well."

Mthiyane played as an attacking midfielder at Thanda Royal Zulu and Usuthu, before he switched to the left-back position at Chippa. The 27-year-old admits it was difficult to adjust at first, but believes he has done well in the role over time.

"It was too tough to adjust because as of now I'm a wing-back and I'm playing mostly at the back," he added.
