Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that Lindokuhle Mbatha and Luyolo Nomandela have had their contracts terminated by mutual consent.

Mbatha, who spent the last six months of last season on loan at Mpumalanga Black Aces, had a contract at Chloorkop that ran until June next year.

In addition, Nomandela was also approaching the end of his deal and was released after failing to make it into Pitso Mosimane's plans.

The duo struggled for playing time with the Brazilians, and are now able to find a new club as they are both free agents after their release.

A Sundowns official told KickOff: "Mbatha is no longer with us. He has left the club after we reached an agreement to terminate his contract.

"Nomandela's issue is also done now. He was here in the office to discuss terms of his settlement, and he is also gone now."

It's thought that the club are next expected to discuss Sibusiso Khumalo's future - the midfielder is seemingly not a part of the club's plans in 2016/17.
