Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka insists the club will not sell in-demand attacker Thapelo Morena in the current transfer window.

Morena is reportedly on the wishlist of several Premiership clubs, with reports suggesting Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are interested in securing his signature.

However, Letsoaka has blasted the clubs chasing Morena for not following proper protocol in their pursuit of the 22-year-old.

"Thapelo is staying. Management has agreed that Thapelo will not be sold," Letsoaka told Goal website.

"There are clubs that were trying to contact the player directly. We told the player to tell the clubs to follow the proper channels because Morena does not belong to himself.

"If they want the player, they must contact us. Why should they go and promise him heaven and earth? There's a club that communicated with us regarding Morena, but things did not work out. We need to challenge for the championship."

Meanwhile, the players who look certain to head for the exit at Celtic include; Lerato Lamola, Vuyani Ntanga and Bevan Fransman.
