Swallows open up on Ngcobo interest


Swallows FC are not ruling out the possibility of parting ways with Kaizer Chiefs target Njabulo Ngcobo at the end of the season.

The lanky 26-year-old former Uthongathi FC centre-back has featured 19 times for the Beautiful Birds this season and has also chipped in with two goals.

This would come as a huge plus for Amakhosi if they can get their man as they last had Tefu Mashamaite as a defender who was a threat when it came to scoring through set-pieces.

"Ngcobo is still a Swallows player, and we believe he will be a Swallows player until such time the status quo changes," Swallows CEO Sipho Xulu tells KickOff.com.

"But for now Ngcobo is a Swallows player. If there's changes we will announce, but there's no other team which is attached to him. He is a Swallows player."

Xulu was forthcoming when pressed further and admitted they might be talking to some clubs about the talented centre-back.

"[Laughing] Ya well as for Ngcobo let me say, most of the teams are talking about him," the club official says.

"And there are people that are claiming to be talking to us, and some maybe talking to us but we want to respect the confidentiality between us and the player.

"The player belongs to Swallows, until such time if there's anything happening with him. Whether the offers are coming or not coming it's neither here nor there because those are just offers. Until those offers are discussed and agreed upon, there's nothing we can really consider."
