Despite finishing last season as the top scorer in the Absa
Premiership, Black Leopards received no offers for Mwape Musonda in the
recently concluded South African transfer window.
The Zambian international became the first player to crack
the 15-goal mark in the South African top-flight since Siyabonga Nomvethe in
After scoring 16 goals in the previous campaign, the
expectation was that multiple offers would be tabled for the 29-year-old, but
according to the club's general manager Tshifhiwa Thidiela, nothing concrete
was put on the table.
"I would read a lot of rubbish in the newspapers about big
money offers, one even said R17 million, but we never received a single
bid," he told the media.
"We would have been happy to sell him.
"He has done a lot for the cub and we did not want to
stand in his way if an offer was made."
Musonda missed the first three games of the season but
returned in the club's last outing against Maritzburg United.
He is expected to be in the starting line-up against Baroka
FC at Thohoyandou on Sunday.
