Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has rejected reports linking the club with Bidvest Wits midfielder Faty Papy.

Speculation has suggested that the Brazilians are in for the Burundian to replace outgoing Bongani Zungu, who will join Vitoria Guimaraes from Portugal next season.

Mosimane has claimed that the days of Sundowns splurging money on players unnecessarily are over.

"That's not really true. Faty is contracted to Wits and if want to buy we will have to spend R7m and we are not going to do that. Those days are gone," Mosimane told KickOff.

"Ever since we changed that programme we have seen the results. But there are players we need to strengthen our team - that is not a secret - but unfortunately they are contracted to other teams, so we can't get them.

"We have to wait for their contracts to finish, and some have two years to go. And to buy locally for us is not going to be easy because the market is very expensive.

"We will rather go to South America and get players like Leo Castro."
