Black Leopards coach Alan Clark says the club will support Lesedi Kapinga if he decides to join another club.
The 24-year-old striker is a reported target for Mamelodi Sundowns although all contract talks are currently on hold as a result of the coronavirus.
But Clark, whose side signed Kapinga from Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC in 2018, won't stand in the player's way if he wants to move on as he nears the end of his current contract.
Clark said on the SowetanLIVE: "I think Lesedi is one of those players I've had good conversations with, in fact, I spoke to him this week and he's very motivated to do well, whether he stays or moves on.
"In life, you never know which bridges you're going to cross, so it's very important to make sure you don't burn those bridges.
"So, whatever you do in life, you always do your best so when you see that person again, they still have the same respect for you and whatever you did for them.
"If Lesedi does move on to another club, we'll wish him all the best but it's his responsibility to make sure that he gives everything he can to the club that took him to the premier league and gave him that opportunity.
"I get the feeling from him that he wants nothing more than to do his best for Leopards, and when the time comes for him to shake hands and leave then everybody will do so with a smile on their face. And I think that's the best situation both for him and the club."
