A Briefly News source said Sundowns is doing everything they can to keep Mokoena while showing an interest in Stellies star Jayden Adams.

The source said:

"We all know how important Tebza is to this club, and they want to keep him here. He [Tebza] is away with Bafana, and his contract offer to stay is still on the table. Everybody expects him to be at Sundowns next season, but if he does go, it will not be cheap."
