Cape Town - Mamelodi-born Kaizer Chiefs winger George Lebese has made no secret of the fact he is not surprised by reports linking him with a move to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Rumours have surfaced that the 28-year-old has grown unsettled at Naturena, after seeing his playing time with the Soweto giants reduced under coach Steve Komphela.

The Bafana Bafana international has also previously taken to social media to hint that he wasn't entirely satisfied with the state of affairs at Naturena.

Despite speculation, he says he is content at Chiefs although recognises why the Brazilians might be interested in his services.

"I am still with Kaizer Chiefs and that's about as far as I go and where it stands at the moment. I am happy," he told the Sowetan website. 

"I have heard the rumours about me joining Sundowns and to be honest they (the speculations) have been with me since I turned pro.

"I am from Mamelodi and that's my home‚ so the speculation doesn't surprise me."
