Cape Town - Serame Letsoaka is confident he'll be able to keep his most prized assets at Bloemfontein Celtic as the off-season looms.

After a disappointing campaign for a club of Siwelele's stature, rumors have been making the rounds in the local media about Letsoaka's key players.

Young forwards Thapelo Morena, Lyle Lakay and Dumisani Zuma have all been linked with big-money moves to Gauteng, but the former Golden Arrows boss says he's not worried about the reported interest.

"We are not going to release any top player at Celtic," he told The Sowetan

"I'm not worried because these players have contracts. The players that must go at the end of the season will go and those we want to keep will stay."

Morena, whose scintillating form has earned him a spot in the national under-23 side, could be a key player in Owen Da Gama's Olympic squad later this year.

The forward still has a four-year contract with Phunya Sele Sele, and his manager's statement about his immediate future was clear.

"He [Morena] is a key player for the club for next season," Letsoaka added.
