Ajax and the 18-year-old defender's troubles are well documented and Magqwaka has in the past taken the club to the Premier Soccer League dispute resolution chamber to try to get his contract with the Urban Warriors terminated.

While he is pleased with Koqobe's switch to SuperSport United, Efstathiou has sent a warning to the Amajita captain, reminding him that Ajax still own him.

"We've put him out on loan to see whether things will change for him if he's in a different environment," Efstathiou told Football411.

"He's got an opportunity and so let's see if the situation changes."

"It is all up to him really, he can't keep on blaming everybody else he's got to take it up now and see where takes it from here."

"SuperSport, they have an option to buy him out right but we own the player."

"He's got an option to go to SuperSport if they wish to take him."

"But the final decision is entirely ours."

Koqobe is currently with Amajita on a training camp in Port Elizabeth and is fighting for a place in the final 21-man squad that will travel to Senegal to take part in the 19th Edition of the CAF African Youth Championships.

The tournament takes place from 8-22 March, 2015.
