Cape Town - Following a statement released by SuperSport United on Tuesday claiming that Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro has signed a pre-contract with them, Orlando Pirates’ Administration Manager, Floyd Mbele, distanced the Buccaneers from any involvement with their arch-rivals’ unsettled striker.

Majoro was rumoured to have signed for the Pretoria-based outfit on a swap deal that saw midfielder George Maluleka going to Naturena, but the 27-year-old did not agree on personal terms with Matsatsantsa.

As a result, the three time Premiership winners released a statement linking the former AmaZulu target-man with a move to the Happy People.

Speaking exclusively to Sport24, Mbele dismissed the reports.

“Majoro is a Chiefs player,” said Mbele.

“There might be speculation saying he is in talks with Pirates but we are unaware of that.

“We are not in talks with him.

“What we know is that he is in the books of Kaizer Chiefs, so for now I will only comment only on Pirates players not Chiefs players.

Earlier on Tuesday, Chiefs' Corporate and Communications Manager, Vina Maphosa, told Sport24 that Majoro decided not to extend his stay with the reigning Premiership champions.

Maphosa also added that, should he fail to find a new club in the current PSL transfer window, he will remain with Chiefs until the end of the season, and will then decide where to go as he will be a free agent.
