Cape Town - Black Leopards general manager Tshifhiwa Thidiela insists the club received no offers for striker Mwape Musonda during the transfer window.

The Premiership's leading scorer last season, Musonda missed Leopards' first three games of this campaign as he waited for a potential move away from the Limpopo club.

Thidiela says they would have been happy to let the player move on but no concrete offer was received.

"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,"Thidiela said, according to TimesLive.

"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 played his first game of the season against Maritzburg United before the international break and is expected to line up for Lidoda Duvha against Baroka FC this weekend.
