The 27-year-old midfielder earned a move to Turkey in 2017 on the back of an outstanding campaign with Cape Town City, which saw him scoop numerous accolades, including Absa Premiership Footballer of the Season.

However, Manyama failed to establish himself at the Konya Buyuksehir Stadium and was expected to leave the Turkish Super Lig outfit after making just 10 first-team appearances.

Maimane Phiri has now confirmed that his client was since released by the Anatolian Eagle, and a decision will soon be made regarding the Bafana Bafana international's next move.

SuperSport United had already expressed an interest in Manyama, but the club's CEO, Stanley Matthews, conceded they cannot afford his wages. Mamelodi Sundowns have also been linked with his signature.

"They (Konyaspor) gave him the clearance [earlier this week]," Phiri was quoted as saying by Sunday World.

"We will decide on Monday what to do [next]. We are not sure if he'll be back in the PSL, I don't want to speculate."

Mamelodi Sundowns are believed to be keen on the attacker with Kaizer Chiefs also keen to bolster their attack by signing the player.
