Themba Zwane’s agent Jazzman Mahlakgane says the only club they are talking to about the player’s future is Mamelodi Sundowns, as he quashed rumours of discussions with Kaizer Chiefs.
Zwane, whose contract with the 2016 CAF Champions League winners is set to expire at the end of the season, has been linked with Amakhosi who are looking to boost their attacking options.
'Mshishi' is free to sign a pre-contract with the club of his choice in January, but Mahlakgane says his client is only talking to Sundowns.
"There's nothing like that [discussions with Chiefs]. The real story is that we are talking to Sundowns only, full stop," Mahlakgane tells KickOff.com.
"The people who are spreading those rumours must not try to make us busy with something that is not there.
"We are only talking to Sundowns as far as I know, as far as me and my player knows. So if there's something else that I'm not aware of ... if there's something else it's not in my power. But me as a duly authorised intermediate of Mshishi I'm talking to Sundowns, and you can confirm that with Sundowns."
Sundowns are already prepared to lose Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro at the end of the season and they would not want to lose another influential player in Zwane.
The Brazilians, however, could regret not negotiating with Zwane earlier because there is serious interest from Soweto clubs, according to sources close to the player.
Previously they lost right-back Ramahlwe Mphahlele to Chiefs.
Sundowns spokesperson Thulani Thuswa did not want to comment on the matter.
