Utility player Bruce Kangwa signed a one-year extension contract with Highlanders FC a move that indicates he might be weighing future options with other clubs.

The teama��s chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede revealed that they intended to pin down the player but he chose the short term.

a�?We wanted him to sign a long term contract but he just would not budge,a�? Gumede said.

Twenty-seven year-old Kangwaa��s contract with Highlanders expires on 31 March.

According to Gumede, Kangwa was on a bid to cash in on his career as it nears an end.

a�?He argued that age was no longer on his side. Maybe he will want to move to another club elsewhere after his one year contract with us runs out,a�? said Gumede.

In previous seasons the player was pivotal at Bosso with his ability to fit on the left side of defence or on the same wing in attack.

He has been hailed as one of the most committed players at Highlanders. He joined the team in 2009 when he was signed by then coach Madinda Ndlovu from the now defunct Railstars.

Kangwa was reportedly keen on joining How Mine but his demands saw the gold miners call off negotiations.

The gold miners did engage in talks with the player at the beginning of the year when he was at a national team camp ahead of the African Nations Championships but the playera��s demands stopped them from further pursuing him.

How Mine went on to sign former Gunners, FC Platinum and Dynamos defender Qadr Amin which effectively closed the door on Kangwa reuniting with his former coach at Highlanders, Kelvin Kaindu.
