Cape Town - Following their relegation from the Premiership last week, Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono has revealed there is interest in his players from local teams.

Although he is confident Ezenkosi will bounce straight back up to top tier, Sono admits they will have to fight in the National First Division without some of their key players.

"There are offers for Mashumba and when the right one comes, I will release him," the former Bafana Bafana boss said.

"[Thabang] Monare and Pentjie Zulu are available to join teams of their choices. Luyolo Nomandela and Sibusiso Khumalo were on loan from Sundowns, so they are going back to their club.

"Sipho was also on loan from Prosport. I really would like to keep him but we will see what happens."

Sono also added that the door will always be open for those players who harbour ambitions of playing for the big guns in the Premiership, to come and talk to him first.

"I told players who want to move [that they] are free to approach me and those that want to use us for money must also do the honourable thing," he added.

"But I told those that I know are Cosmos players that I will see them in June when we prepare for our new journey."
