Mokwena joined the Chilli Boys this season but has had little time to make an impact after the league was suspended as a result of the coronavirus.

He must await the outcome of talks between Chippa and Orlando Pirates before discovering where his future will lie.

Mokwena's first choice will be to remain in Port Elizabeth, with Chippa boss Siviwe Mpengesi recently suggesting he was keen to support Mokwena's growth at the club.

He told the Sowetan: "As far as I know, there's three parts to this. It's myself represented by my agent, it's Pirates and it's Chippa United.

"At this moment I have not heard of any updates on the discussion. I know there are discussions, but I know that everybody has to come to an agreement unfortunately."

Mokwena's added: "It's a club that has a lot of potential and has fantastic facilities. It has a great chairman, contrary to what people say. I think the chairman is a great person and I have enjoyed working with him.

"He is very supportive, ambitious and like I said, I have enjoyed even working with the players.

"To me the biggest part is on the pitch, but unfortunately with this lockdown there hasn't been much football. I take great pride in what we have done.

"I have a plan as to what I want to do and the chairman of Chippa United knows what I would love to do and where I would love to be."
