The promising youngster is currently embroiled in a bitter dispute with the Urban Warriors and is hoping to have his contract terminated after taking his case to the Premier Soccer League dispute resolution chamber.

However, Ajax insist they cannot pay a player, who hasn't "come to work", although the 19-year-old looks increasingly unlikely to return to the club.

Magqwaka has attracted the interest of SuperSport United, according to the player's agent, Lizwe Mthethwa. And if the Bafana Bafana U/20 player is successful in his bid to have his contract annulled, a move to SuperSport would certainly be on the cards.

Commenting on his dispute with Ajax, Magqwaka told Sowetan Live: "I didn't get a salary last month. I have not been speaking to Ajax and I'm looking forward to my court case so that we can end everything.

"I am still suspended but I never got a letter saying I'm suspended. All I got from the club was a text message saying I am suspended because I went public about the meeting I had with the CEO [Ari Efstathiou] and he shouted and swore at me."

Meanwhile, Efstathiou has moved to dispel the notion that Magqwaka could soon be on his way out of the club.

He said: "You can't get paid if you do not come to work. Where has he been? He must come back and work," Efstathiou said.

"There's no chance of him leaving. He has a contract and it must be honoured."
