Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town captain Travis Graham believes he is ready to make a move to a bigger club, amidst reports linking him with Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Graham says he is humbled by the reports linking him with the Soweto giants, and feels the time is right to make the next step in his career.

The versatile Urban Warriors player had a satisfying season with the club after leading them to the MTN8 title.

"Personally I feel I'm ready to make the next big step," Graham told KickOff.

"I've been with Ajax most of my career and have grown immensely. I've learnt a heck of a lot during my time at Ikamva.

"I have not had any contact from any club in Joburg yet, but should Chiefs or Pirates come knocking, I'll be ready to make that step. I'm honestly very flattered by these reports."

Ajax coach Roger de Sa has made it clear that the club would not stand in the way of any player leaving in the off-season.

"Look, Ajax is a selling club. We develop youngsters for the senior team through our academy. The players we sell will automatically make way for the new talent."

Ajax will host Wits at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday in their final match of the season.
