Cape Town - Egyptian giants Al Ahly have quashed talk that former Wits striker Phakamani Mahlambi could be set for a return to the Absa Premiership.

Mahlambi joined the eight-time CAF Champions League winners in September, but has made only seven appearances for his new club.

The 20-year-old's agent, Glyn Binkin, recently spoke of the possibility that the Bafana-capped marksman could be sent on a loan spell and there was speculation in South Africa that first Mamelodi Sundowns and then Orlando Pirates were interested.

But according to the Al Ahly football director, the Egyptian giants do not intend to ship Mahlambi out on a loan spell.

"Phakamani's case is totally closed. He will continue with us," Abdel Hafeez told On Sport TV after the team's 3-1 win over Al Ragaa in a league game on Thursday.
