Uganda and Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has committed to staying with the South African club.

The Cranes skipper is currently in his country on holiday and was speaking to a Ugandan television station when he said that he will remain with his club despite interest from other parties.

Onyango insists he is committed to the Premier Soccer League champions and revealed that he is a wanted man in Saudi Arabia and other countries.

While appearing on PRESSBOX, a weekly sports show on NTV, Onyango expressed his content with the Masandawana.

“I have got a lot of offers up to now from Asia, Middle East… Saudi Arabia,” said the keeper.

“But Sundowns have said No! They (Sundowns) said I give them what they want and of course they give me what I want.

“They believe I can stay at the club longer even after football and do something with the youngsters out there and be an ambassador for the club.”

“At my age I want to move on but I must also consider the life after football. Much as I want to play in Europe there’s an opportunity for me stay and work under the same management.”

Since joining Sundowns in 2011, Onyango has played a major role in lifting the CAF Champions League title, one CAF Super Cup, three PSL titles, a Nedbank Cup and one Telkom Knockout Cup.
