Cape Town - Golden Arrows head coach Shaun Bartlett denies that the club secured the services of Mozambican forward Helder Pelembe during the transfer window, which closed last Friday.

On Monday morning, Arrows spokesman Vusi Vilakazi was reported to have confirmed the deal had been finalised and that Pelembe was heading to the East Coast.
