Mosimane has since confirmed that Lebese wants to leave Sundowns. 

"I think he wants to leave because in his position is the position of Mshishi [Themba Zwane] and sometimes we use [Gaston] Sirino in that space and sometimes Vila [Sibusiso Vilakazi] and we can even put Thapelo [Morena]. It's very difficult for him to be honest," said Mosimane. 

"If he has a team, we won't stand in his way. He has to play football ",he added.
