"It's ongoing talks, as our CEO has mentioned. We will see because unfortunately Dean is our captain, a team player and a motivator to younger players.

"The club will make an announcement and Dean is enjoying his football. This is his home and Dean wants to play in South Africa, especially for SuperSport United.

"But whether there's an offer or not, if he stays, it's up to him and the club."
