Cape Town - Representatives of Brilliant Khuzwayo say recent reports the Orlando Pirates goalkeeper is about to retire are utter rubbish.

Khuzwayo has relatively little time left on his current deal and no talks have been started between the club and player about the prospects of renewal.

This has led to speculation that he is set to leave the Sea Robbers.

On top of that, rumours have begun to surface of a knee injury that could end his career.

However, both claims have been categorically denied by his agent.

Speaking to Goal, Basia Michales of QT Sport said: "I haven’t received a phone call [from Pirates] to that effect.

"No [he has not been advised]. Advised by who? No that isn’t true, never said to me.

Khuzwayo is yet to make an appearance for the Bucs since arriving from Kaizer Chiefs at the start of last season.

He is far down the pecking order at Pirates with Wayne Sandilands, Siyabonga Mpontshane and Jackson Mabokgwane all believed to be ahead of him in terms of selection.
