Reyaad Pieterse will look for a new club ahead of the new season after struggling for game time at Mamelodi Sundowns, the player's agent has revealed.

The former Bidvest Wits, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United goalkeeper joined Downs in 2018 and has faced stiff competition for a place in the side.

Ahead of the 28-year-old this season are Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene as well as academy graduate Abram Ngcobo, while Jody February has also already been signed for the 20/21 Premier Soccer League campaign.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Gary Cassisa explained that Pieterse needs to be playing regularly at this stage of his career.

He said: "Obviously he has lacked on the game-time and it is not that he has any hard feelings towards Sundowns.

"It is just a career decision that he wants to look for a move where he can go and get game-time, whether it is out on loan, or whether it is an outright transfer.

"He just wants to move to a club to find game-time."
