Cape Town - Moroka Swallows CEO Leon Prins has rubbished rumours the Soweto club are in talks with University of Pretoria to buy their Premiership status for next season.

South Africa's top flight is awash with speculation regarding the teams relegated at the end of last season, with AmaZulu reaching an agreement to purchase Mpumalanga Black Aces' spot for next term.

Claims now suggest the Dube Birds could follow suit after they were resigned to the National First Division of losing the PSL promotion play-offs, but Prins has moved quickly to end any such talk.

"You mustn't believe in all the rumours here, really. Next week [they will be saying] I'm marrying a tree so I wouldn't believe anything. At this time there is nothing happening," Prins is quoted as saying by KickOff.

"We are preparing for the National First Division next season, we are preparing our team and that's it, and over and above that I have no comment."
