The former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns centre-back has seen his game time limited this season through injury and his current deal comes to an end in June.

He is, however, keen to sign new terms in order to work his way back into the side where Pogiso Sanoka and Rushine de Reuck have formed a strong partnership.

"I have always said that I wanted to stay," Xulu told the Sowetan.

"But obviously it's something that we have to restructure... I and the chairman. I'll give my all for the club. I will focus on renewing my contract."

Team of Choice Chairman Farook Kadodia, meanwhile, added that his hands are currently tied.

He said: "I am keen on keeping each and every player in the current team, not just Xulu alone. Xulu will be part of Maritzburg as much as he wants to, unless he has other aspirations elsewhere.

"We can't do anything right now, we've stopped everything... our focus is to fight coronavirus."

Reports suggest Orlando Pirates would be keen to sign Xulu for free if his Maritzburg contract is allowed to elapse.
