Absa Premiership side AmaZulu says they have no intention of selling players that are "critical to the team".

A number of top sides are reportedly keen on Usuthu striker Bonginkosi Ntuli and goalkeeper Siyabonga Mbatha.

There have in fact been widespread reports of player movements from a number of clubs at the end of the season.

But general manager Lunga Sokhela has ruled out departures from AmaZulu.

The Durban-based club entered the enforced break as a result of the lockdown due to coronavirus measures in 15th place on the Premier Soccer League standings.

Sokhela said onGagasi FM: "Bongi Ntuli is important and we've got many other important players, many sorts of players.

"I think that's why now we've got a vacuum of people linking him to other clubs and all those shenanigans. Siya Mbatha to Pirates, Sundowns and all those things. There's no such.

"Those players are very critical to the team, and even players that haven't even featured yet, players in the MDC side, they are very important to what we want to achieve as a club.

"Bongi has been scoring goals for us, but he doesn't play on his own. He's got players around him, so we have to appreciate the fact that the club is taking good shape and has got a very bright future."
