Bafana Bafana captain Ronwen Williams is said to be of considerable interest to Orlando Pirates as the season draws to an end.

The 30-year-old has enjoyed an illustrious career at SuperSport, where he has amassed over 250 appearances at a club where he has been based for over a decade.

Williams has reiterated that he is open to staying at Matsatsantsa should they meet his ambitions, but he has also hinted that there would be an appealing element to joining a club that could compete for the DStv Premiership title.

“Yes, there have been talks and we will see what’s going to happen now. There has been some interest, so it will all depend on the club if they are willing to let me go,” Williams told the media during the Castle “It’s Within” media engagement in Tembisa, as reported by Sowetan Live.

“I told them what my ambitions are and it is for them to decide. If SuperSport wants me to stay, I will gladly stay.

“But if they are willing to let me go, maybe that’s the time now, but as I said, I’m happy at SuperSport, but they know what my ambitions are and we will see in the next few weeks what will happen.”

Williams also hinted that he would love to be challenging for the league title, and that prospect doesn’t seem likely for SuperSport at the moment.

“My ambition is to win the league. I told them I have not won the league and with the direction the club is going now, we should be realistic. We have a lot of youngsters and there is no chance that we can challenge the bigger boys.

“If this is the direction we are going, I can’t see us winning the league title. Yes, we will challenge for cups here and there.

“I have bigger ambitions than that and we will see what happens. Like I said, if I stay, I will give my all like I always do and we will see in the next few weeks what will happen.”
