Black Leopards striker Roggert Nyundu was hours away from joining a Gauteng club in the January transfer window, according to his agent Lizwe Mthethwa.
Nyundu told KickOff.com last week he is desperate to play in the Absa Premiership as he is getting on in years.
Mthethwa says the 28-year-old nearly achieved his goal at the beginning of the year amid interest from Bidvest Wits, Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United.
And while Mthethwa feels Nyundu - who netted 19 goals for Leopards last term - has not been at his best this season, he is adamant his client belongs in the topflight.
"Roggert Nyundu hasn't had the best season, not by his standards. It is all because at the beginning of the season he was poised to make his big move to the PSL," Mthethwa, of AFTERSEC Sport Group, tells this website.
"We were literally hours away from signing with a Gauteng club when Black Leopards came out of the woodwork. We had an interest from Wits, Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United.
"Having said that, I know his club won't like this but Nyundu deserves to be in the PSL."
Mthethwa hopes a move can be arranged at the end of the campaign.
"At the end of the season we will try to sit down with Leopards and put together a situation that will suit both parties.
"But the club is ambitious and they value Nyundu so they won't let him go that easily."
Nyundu, who signed a three-year deal with the club before the season started, has scored six times in 18 matches for Lidoda Duvha in all competitions in 2015/16.
