University of Pretoria have revealed they will not be signing Orlando Pirates midfielder Mpho Makola, quashing speculation that the 26-year-old player would be loaned to the club before the transfer window closes.

Since he moved to Pirates from Free State Stars, Makola has struggled to claim a regular spot in a team teeming with the talent of the likes of Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa, Sifiso Myeni and Thabo Matlaba.

AmaTuks had reportedly approached Bucs for a possible loan-deal that would see him crossing over to the Steve Barker-coached side.

However, AmaTuks Media Officer Khathochelo Mbanda tells KickOff.com that the club never held any official talks with Makola.

"We will not be singing him," Mbanda says.

"We have not held any talks with any player from Orlando Pirates and we were surprised when we read reports linking us to the player.

"Officially there were never any talks between us and him so there is no deal to talk about," she adds.
