'He is well aware of all these teams that want him, but he also knows that the club can’t afford to lose him,' said a source.

The midfielder has been linked with several clubs in the DStv Premiership with Kaizer Chiefs being the front leaders to sign him. But, Stellies are already working on a new and improved contract for the Bafana Bafana player, especially since his contract with the Cape Town based side is set to expire in 2024.

It is also said that Mthethwa is enjoying his football at Stellenbosch, and with much interest he will leave to the club to decide if they are willing to let him go.

“Mthethwa is a very honest guy, and has been a good professional at Stellenbosch since he set foot at the club. He is well aware of all these teams that want him, but he also knows that the club can’t afford to lose him. The Stellenbosch management are already working on a new contract for him because they want to put a stop to all these links,” said an insider.
