Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Anele Ngcongca has revealed that he hasn't signed a new contract because the club is only willing to give him one year.

The 32-year-old is in the last few months of his contract and is keen to sign at least a two-year deal, but at the moment the Brazilians are reluctant to meet his demands.

"My agent (Mike Makaab) is busy (negotiating) with Sundowns. To be honest, (the disagreement) is not about money. I can say that it's the number of years we're not agreeing on, I want two and at the moment they've given me one," Ngcongca told Sowetan.

"In Belgium, I played nine seasons for one team (KRC Genk) and when I performed well my contract was extended every time after six months. here (at Sundowns) it's different. I want to secure my future.

"Look, I am experienced enough if we don't come to the agreement, I will see what I'll do. At the moment I am focused on finishing the season, we will take it from there.

"I have a great relationship in Europe, and I am still in touch with many people there, especially those who're involved in coaching. But at this moment, I am fully focused on the job at hand, that's helping Sundowns win games."

The former Troyes player has racked up 94 appearances since signing for the Chloorkop outfit back in 2016.
