Black Leopards star Lesedi Kapinga has been linked with Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns but he's been advised to join Bidvest Wits or SuperSport United instead.

Burning Spear Development Academy (BSDA) principal Nqobile Nsindane believes Kapinga, who came through the academy, should follow in Hlompho Kekana's footsteps.

Kekana made a name for himself at SuperSport United and Bloemfontein Celtic before getting snapped up by Masandawana in 2011.

Nsindane reckons it's in Kapinga's best interest to play for a team like SuperSport or Wits before moving to one of the country's biggest clubs.

"To be honest, I think he should look at Kekana's career. Kekana left Leopards in 2008 when he joined SuperSport United," Nsindane told Daily Sun.

"Kekana did well at United and grew into a big star. That is why he is the player he is today. It is true, big teams can pay you well.

"But are you going to play and grow as a player or you are just going there for the money?"

"I think the team that Kapinga should sign for is SuperSport or Wits. He will grow like Kekana. But that is just my advice," he added.

"I have no doubt he will do well at any team. All I want is for him to grow and not rush (into joining a club) for money. He is talented and I see a bright future for him."
