Elias Pelembe says he's not considering retirement as he looks for a club where he will get regular game time.

The 37-year-old former SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns winger was left without a club following the sale of Bidvest Wits to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.

Pelembe says he has at least another three years left in the game, but despite a number of offers 'on the table', he is waiting for the right club to join.

Speaking to the SowetanLIVE, the Mozambican explained: "I'm still looking for a team. I have some offers on the table but I'm still studying them.

"I have two in the GladAfrica Championship, one in the Dstv Premiership and a few [from] teams here in Mozambique, so I'm still checking which ones will fit me.

"Maybe before the end of next week I would have made a decision. I'm not in a hurry to get a team. I'm currently training alone to get fit. I have a gym at my house, and I am in good shape."

Pelembe added: "I'm still feeling well. Maybe after two or three years, I will retire. People will still see the best out of me. I’m still the way I was. Even my shape, as I said, is OK.

"Everything is OK. I'm injury-free. The reason I'm delaying to join a new team is that I want to get a proper club where I will be happy and where I can play regularly."
