Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha says no deal has been signed with SuperSport United.

READ: Katsande fit and ready to go.

SuperSport announced on the weekend that they had secured the services of the Zimbabwean international, who has also played for Free State Stars and Black Leopards.

"Nkhatha, whose current contract with Kaizer Chiefs expires on 30 June 2015, will join Matsatsantsa from 1 July 2015 to bolster the attack with the likes of Bradley Grobler, Dove Wome and Thuso Phala," read an official club statement.

But while admitting that there have been talks with Gordon Igesund’s SuperSport side, Nkhatha claims nothing has yet been finalised and adds that he expects to stay at AmaKhosi until the end of the season.

"These are just rumours. I haven't signed any contract with SuperSport but there're some negotiations going on with them as my contract with Chiefs ends in June, any player would like to try his luck elsewhere," Nkhatha told Bulawayo24.

"But I'm still contracted to Chiefs. My job is to make sure that I put all my energies in the team. Our focus is to continue playing good football and maintain the momentum we started with," he added.

Nkhatha has started 20 matches for Chiefs in the 2014/ 2015 campaign. He has scored three goals and has two assists.

He will face additional competition for a starting place after the club confirmed the signing of David Zulu earlier this week.
