The Brazilians recently announced the renewal of Tiyani Mabunda, Themba Zwane and Siyanda Zwane’s contracts with the club, yet have been silent on the future of the former Bloemfontein Celtic skipper who sat on the bench whilst coach Pitso Mosimane opted for Zwane in an unfamiliar position as central defender during their last game against Cape Town City played last week.
Nthethe's contract with Sundowns is set to expire in June next year, with his manager Tim Sukazi revealing that his client is still waiting on Sundowns to resolve the player's future with the club.
"We are waiting on Sundowns to indicate if they will exercise the option [on his contract] or not,” Sukazi tells KickOff.com.
"At the moment nothing has been discussed with Sundowns with regards to his future with the club.”
Nthethe has made just three appearances for Downs across all domestic competitions so far this season.
