Posted: 7 January 2015 Time: 16:46

Platinum Stars defender Tshepo Gumede says he is open to a move if he does not manage to agree terms on a new contract with Dikwena.

The 23-year-old is on the wanted-list of Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates, with the former looking like favourites to land the former SuperSport United centre-back despite allegations of poaching him early.

Gumede has confirmed with KickOff.com that negotiations with Stars over a new contracts have not born any fruit. However, he could not be drawn on whether the issue is the figures being proposed.

"It's not about money but a combination of other factors which I cannot disclose," Gumede reveals. "We are still at the negotiation table."

Gumede says he will give Dikwena first preference but if there is no agreement, he is free to sign a pre-contract with another club for next season.

"At the moment I am only speaking to Platinum Stars. I am within my legal right to speak to any team because I am in my last six months of my contract with the club. If things don't work out, I am free to speak to any team," he adds.
