Cape Town - Chippa Mpengesi says his club is yet to receive offers for Thabo Rakhale and Mark Mayambela and will not stand in their way if big clubs come calling for them.

Recent reports had suggested that Cape Town City is keen to sign Mayambela from Chippa United while Rakhale has been linked with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs and Superport United.

Both players were instrumental for the Chillies Boys in the late stages of the  2017/18 season though the club  failed to finish the campaign among the top eight teams in the Premiership.

Rakhale made 15 starts and scored two goals in his first season at Chippa having joined from Orlando Pirates, where he was deemed surplus to requirements.

Mayambela on the other hand made 20 appearances in all competitions scoring two goals.

Chippa chairman Mpengesi said he is aware of the rumours linking the two players with a move away from his club and will not have a problem to sit on the negotiation table if the offers comes.

"Look, we have heard those rumours, but no official offer came to us," Mpengesi told Vodacom Soccer.

"We are a club that entertains everyone that comes especially if you bring something that we want on the table.

"So we are still waiting. There is also nothing for Mayambela as well. Not at the moment.

"There were rumours, but John Comitis confirmed that he does not need him."
