Cape Town - With his contract at Cape Town City set to expire at the end of June, veteran goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters says he is weighing up his options.

Walters joined the Citizens as their first-choice gloveman in 2016, but has since lost his place to Sage Stephens.

The 36-year-old said he has already started negotiations with the Absa Premiership club, but is spoilt for choice in terms of options.

Benni McCarthy's side have been linked with Brilliant Khuzwayo, who is also out of contract at the end of the season and could be looking for regular game time, having struggled at Kaizer Chiefs.

Walters has been playing in South Africa's top flight for over a decade, featuring for the likes of Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United before moving to Cape Town.

"Well, my contract is ending in June, but we have already started negotiations for my role for next season at the club," he told Vodacom Soccer.

"Yeah, I will see how it goes. Obviously see what my body tells me ahead of the pre-season.

"What I want to achieve, do I want to go and push another 'keeper at another club or stay at the club and challenge myself to improve on our clean sheet tally with Sage.

"We had a successful one combined with 15 clean sheets so I will be looking to improve."
