Cape Town - Ernst Middendorp has issued a hands-off warning to Mamelodi Sundowns over Siyabonga Ngezana after the defender was linked with the Chloorkop outfit.

Ngezana has been impressive when called upon at the heart of the Amakhosi defence this season and is one of the club's prized academy assets, having come through the ranks with the likes of Happy Mashiane, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Njabulo Blom.

"Siyabonga Ngezana, I’m very happy with him," Middendorp told Goal.

"We found him in a way in a lot of fouls and a lot of whatever, then he was in Egypt being a crucial part of qualifications for the Olympics Games.

"He played in Port Elizabeth, he played in other games, played fantastically and his big advantage is his age is on his side.

"I think at a certain time it is very, very crucial now. We have other players like Happy Mashiane bringing into the setup, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Njabulo Blom not only training but also involved with the MDC team.

"There’s no way Ngezana is not in our plan, he’s very clearly part of the plans at Kaizer Chiefs and for the future."

Ngezana has made six Absa Premiership appearances this season and scored once in the process.
