“Kaizer Chiefs have not tabled an offer for Sipho and even if they did, he is not for sale to any club at all this season,” SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews told KickOff.
“I can’t comment on what his agent is quoted saying. I spoke to his agent this morning and the words ‘offer from Chiefs’ never came up
SuperSport United also have an option to extend the contract of their star midfielder meaning he can’t sign a pre-contract at Kaizer Chiefs or any other team for that matter.
