South African international Andile Jali's future at Belgian First Division A club KV Oostende is uncertain.

The midfielder has been enjoying regular game time in the heart of the midfield at Oostende this season.

Jali, who has made eight league appearances in the current campaign, says he is only focused on playing football.

"I am not yet sure whether I will stay with Oostende or not next season," Jali told Kick Off Magazine.

" At the moment I have a contract with the club and am focusing on playing football.

The 27-year-old player joined the Belgian side from South African giants Orlando Pirates midway through the 2013/14 season.

"The club has made mention that they want to talk but I can officially confirm that once my agent talks to my club," he added.

"At the moment my agent is the right person to talk to and comment about that."

Jali has been linked with South African sides Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, but his agent agent Mike Makaab has made it clear that the player will not be returning home next season.

He recently helped South Africa thrash Burkina Faso 3-1 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualification (CAF) Group D match in Johannesburg last weekend.
