CEO of Simba SC Senzo Mbatha says the Tanzanian Premier League side are not chasing Orlando Pirates striker Justin Shonga.

The 23-year-old Zambian forward has struggled for regular game time with the Buccaneers this season.

He was reported to have begun talks with Wekundu wa Msimbazi but Mbatha says there is no truth to that rumour.

He told IPP Media: "I have also read the same reports on social media. It is obvious that speculation is rife during this time of the year as we are bearing the June/July transfer window.

"Officially as the club, we have not been in contact with the player or his club for his services.

"We are currently focusing on our players whose contracts are about to expire at the end of the current season. We are trying to tie those.

"As for new recruits, the registration committee has not met and or finalised the matter."
