Cape Town - Cape Town City stars Lebogang Manyama and Aubrey Ngoma have both denied rumours that they are looking to leave the club for new shores.

The pair have been in irresistible form for the Citizens, with Manyama banging in the goals and Ngoma amongst the Premiership leaders when it comes to assists.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane publicly admitted that Manyama would be a player he would like to sign following some stellar performances for Eric Tinkler's side.

However, Manyama has ruled out leaving City and is very committed to the club's cause this season and beyond.

"When you do well there are obviously going to be talks," Manyama told reporters.

"But, we know how to handle such things, we don't think about the future, we think about now and what is going to happen tomorrow."

Meanwhile, Ngoma clearly stated that all his focus is on the Citizens as they have a chance to lift the PSL title in their first season since the club moved and had a name change.

"Our focus is still on Cape Town City, we have just committed our future to Cape Town City and we are not looking at anything past Cape Town City at the moment, we are focused on doing our job and continuing with our season."

City welcome title rivals Bidvest Wits on Wednesday evening for a Premiership encounter at Cape Town Stadium.

Kick off is at 19:30.
