With Mike Makaab recently confirming that he will meet Mamelodi Sundowns after their trip from Cairo in the CAF Champions League to discuss the future of Andile Jali, there are a few other players at Chloorkop who have contracts expiring in June.

Makaab had confirmed to the Siya crew that he is hoping to have things wrapped up within a week or two, but there are a few other Masandawana players who are waiting to hear what the future holds for them.

The Siya crew understands that the DStv Premiership champions are yet to finalize any of the contracts that are set to expire, with decisions set to be made in the final weeks of the season.

According to information received by the Siya crew, Downs are interested in holding onto Thapelo Morena, who signed a three-year contract, with an option to extend for two years. 

Mothobi Mvala is in his third season with the club, with his deal having an option to extend for two more years. The Siya crew has it on good authority that he looks set to stay at Chloorkop, having been in fine form for the club under the tutelage of Rulani Mokwena.

Surprise Ralani's 18-month contract expires in June, but indications are that a decision has not yet been made on his future. With little game-time coming his way, the Siya crew has been told that an exit should not be completely ruled out.

Goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse is also in the final few months of his current deal at Sundowns, who exercised the option in his contract at the end of last season. With Ricardo Goss out on loan for two seasons, and Kennedy Mweene set to focus more on becoming a goalkeeper coach, Premiership log leaders are understood to be looking at the possibility of handing the former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United shot-stopper a new deal.

Big defender Brian Onyango will see his contract expire at the end of the campaign and sources have revealed that Downs have not put a new deal on the table yet for the Kenyan. Haashim Domingo has been affected by injury this season, but there is a good chance that the option in his contract will be exercised, with indications that Mokwena still wants to work with the player. 

Gift Motupa's future at the club remains uncertain at this stage, according to insiders, with the player looking to get more game-time. His deal, which expires in June, has an option to extend for a further two years. But it is unclear at this stage if he will stay with the club.
