Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni has revealed he wants to leave Chloorkop as soon as possible, and has already handed in a transfer request as a part of this process.

Ngobeni has reportedly grown tired of being starved of first team football as Denis Onyango remains the Brazilians undisputed number one under coach Pitso Mosimane.

The player spent last season on loan at Free State Stars before returning for the start of the 2017/18 campaign, however, he has found playing time very hard to come by.

As such, the 28-year-old wants to leave Sundowns for new pastures as he has become frustrated at being frozen out on the playing side.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma website, he said, "I have become disillusioned with the way I have been treated ever since returning to Mamelodi Sundowns from my loan spell with Free State Stars.

“I am hopeful that they will acknowledge my request to leave the club, as it will be a benefit to both me and management if they are to entertain offers for my services.

"I am grateful for all that Sundowns has done for me as a player and professional, both on and off the pitch."
