Black Leopards captain Siphelele Ntshangase says he is ready to play in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
The attacking midfielder was heavily linked with Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates prior to the 2016/17 season.
National First Division (NFD) outfit Leopards managed to retain his services as they looked to secure promotion to the PSL.
However, Lidoda Duvha failed to secure promotion to the top flight league after finishing second in the recent PSL promotion/reegation play-offs.
“It’s been a long and tough journey for me,” Ntshangase told Daily Sun.
“I’ve been part of the National First Division (NFD) for a long time, and now it’s about time I faced other challenges. I’m ready for new competition,” he said.
The former South Africa Under-23 international, who made his Bafana Bafana debut against Swaziland in a friendly match in 2015, has been a loyal servant for Leopards.
“I think it’s about time I made the move, I’m ready to join a PSL club,” Ntshangase added.
“I can’t play in the NFD for the rest of my career. So far, I haven’t received any official offers, but something will come up and time around I’ll take it,” he stressed.
“I’ll go where my heart wants to be because I want game time wherever I’ll be going,” he concluded.
Reigning PSL champions Bidvest Wits have also been linked with the 24-year-old midfielder, who is nicknamed Stash, in the past.
