Sibanda, whose contract with Spurs expires at the end of June, is set to leave the club after they were relegated to the ABC Motsepe League this season.

Reports suggested that he was headed home to Zimbabwe to join CAPS United, but Sibanda says a number of Absa Premiership sides have contacted him to enquire about his services.

“I’m moving after my contract expires at the end of June,” Sibanda told the Herald. “I can’t really open up on the next move because already there are some offers on the table. I am just trying to focus on the national team, for now, then will see what follows after.”

The 34-year-old was linked with a move to Zimbabwean side CAPS United, but his agent Nqobizitha Mlilo told the Herald that he is staying in South Africa.

“Eddy (Sibanda) is moving to a Premier League team in South Africa. I can’t state which team at the moment. We are still considering the offers we have received,” said Mlilo.
