AmaZulu FC have opened up on their stance regarding on-loan Cape Town City FC player Zukile Kewuti.
Last week City chairman John Comitis confirmed that the player will return to Cape Town following AmaZulu's failure to trigger a pre-existing clause in their loan agreement.
"I don't think Benni knew about the facts of the deal. There is a pre-set transfer amount in the loan agreement. They could have exercised it at the end of April if I'm not mistaken, and they didn't take the option," Comitis told the media.
But Usuthu media officer Brilliant Mkhathini has explained that the club have set protocol to deal with players' contractual matters at the end of the season to avoid disrupting their camp.
"The club's principle is that we only finish up on news on players at the end of the season just to keep the spirit of oneness and everything," Mkhathini tells KickOff.com.
"I read what Mr Comitis said but the management do not want us to say anything."
Pressed further on the chances of seeing the 25-year-old stay in Durban next season, Mkhathini replied: "Like I'm saying, I'm not allowed to say anything on Kewuti and other players."
AmaZulu defender Sibusiso Mabiliso has already bade his farewell ahead of an anticipated move to Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs.
