SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews has revealed that Aubrey Modiba will be allowed to leave the club if his buy-out clause is matched.

Mamelodi Sundowns are a reported suitor for the 24-year-old midfielder who joined Matsatsantsa from Cape Town City in 2016.

He signed a new four-and-a-half-year deal with the club in February, but SuperSport may be keen to lower their wage bill, as clubs start to feel the pinch of inactivity, as a result of the coronavirus.

The Premier Soccer League has been suspended for over two months, with no date yet set for a possible restart.

Matthews told IOL: "Aubrey has a buyout clause. If somebody comes and meet the requirements, they will own Aubrey Modiba.

"If they want the player they will come and get him. I am ready for that and they know the price, so there's nothing to discuss.

"Even after I renewed his contract, there's still interest in Modiba. I renewed Jeremy Brockie's contract and the interest got higher. Renewing doesn't mean anything."
