Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund has revealed that on-loan Mamelodi Sundowns forward Dove Wome will not be heading back to his parent club this season.

The Togo international linked up with Matsatsantsa during the off-season after falling out of favour with Brazilians boss Pitso Mosimane last term.

Wome has starred for Igesund's side since his arrival, scoring seven goals in 10 appearances and helping the Tshwane outfit reach the Telkom Knockout final.

Such form has led to suggestions that the 23-year-old could be recalled by Sundowns to aid their challenge for the Premiership title they won in the previous campaign.

Igesund, though, has poured cold water on those claims, insisting that Wome will continue to spearhead SSU's quest for honours throughout 2014/15.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, the 58-year-old tactician said: "Dove Wome is a SuperSport United player. He won't be returning to Sundowns."
