Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos boss Jomo Sono denied reports that Charlton Mashumba will be presented as a Kaizer Chiefs player on Monday.

The Zimbabwean striker has impressed since his arrival at Ezenkosi during the 2013/14 season, scoring 28 goals over the past two seasons for the club.

Sono confirmed that Chiefs enquired about Mashumba's availability but insists they never tabled an official offer for his services.

"Bobby [Motaung] did approach me to ask about Mashumba three weeks ago. But he never came back," Sono told the Sunday Times.

"It is not only Chiefs. Sundowns, Wits and the new Cape Town club of John Comitis are also interested." 

After revealing the interested parties, the Cosmos owner and head coach admitted Mashumba will be allowed to move back to the Premiership.

"We want to release the player. He has been very loyal to us. We won't stand in his way," Sono said.
