According to reports, Hendrick Pule Ekstein could be on his way out of Kaizer Chiefs, four years after making his debut.
Reports from The Sowetan suggest that Pule could be ready to forge a move to another PSL side in favour of more game time and better opportunities.
"He may leave because it doesn't seem that Chiefs are willing to improve his contract and he's only left with a few months," said a source, who's close to Ekstein.
"The reality is that he's not one of the top earners at the club and at 28, he wants to get an improved deal."
Ekstein was initially promoted to Amakhosi's first team back in 2015 after being in the youth academy where he will see his contract expire on June 30, 2019.
According to The Sowetan, Chiefs spokesman Vina Maphosa said management is yet to brief him on the said matter and cannot comment any further.
"I wait for the reports from management and there's nothing (regarding Ekstein) on my table at the moment," Maphosa said.
Chiefs have recently renewed the contracts of Bernard Parker, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Kgotso Moleko respectively.
They have also promoted and signed long-term deals with young players such as Happy Mashiane and Njabulo Blom.
Since making his debut against amateur side Edu Sports in the Nedbank Cup in 2015, Ekstein has made 88 PSL appearances for Chiefs and scored approximately six goals.
