Clayton Daniels says he wasn't prepared to remain at SuperSport United and not play so he is looking for a club to "finish" his career.
The 36-year-old centre-back, who left the club this week, after reportedly failing to agree terms on a new deal, says he has two years left in football.
A former Ajax Cape Town, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic defender, Daniels joined Matsatsantsa in 2013.
He won a number of trophies with the club but has decided to move on for more game time.
Speaking to SuperSport, Daniels was reported to have said: "I feel I have two good years left in me so I don't want to spend those years watching others play, but that doesn't change the amazing time I have had at the club and how they been good to me and trusted me with the captaincy in 2014.
"So, I wish all my SuperSport family the best and no one can take away the history we made together, it's part of football and now I will be looking forward to finding a new club to finish my career."
