Cape Town - Nigeria international Ejike Uzoenyi says he is training with former team Enugu Rangers, but insists that he is still contracted to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The 24-year-old secured a lucrative contract with the Chloorkop-based outfit in 2014 following his impressive showing at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) hosted in South Africa.

However, the Nigerian hasn't been able to replicate that form during his stay with Sundowns, featuring eight times in all competitions in a tenure plagued by injuries and contractual disputes.

After being spotted at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Uzoenyi confirmed that he is training with his former employers in a bid to regain his fitness.

"I am just training with my former club to keep fit, any moment from now I am going back to South Africa," he told Nation Online.

"I don't know the time, but I know I will leave soon.

"If I don't have a contract again what will I go and do in South Africa? I have an existing contract," he concluded.
