Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has revealed that Bidvest Wits have rebuffed their offer to buy midfielder Sibusiso Vilakazi.

Amakhosi have already seen several bids rejected from their Premiership rivals for the former PSL Footballer of the Season.

The Clever Boys have reportedly received an offer of R11m plus a striker for Vilakazi from an unidentified club.

Motaung implied that Wits are eager to squeeze out as much money as possible from the sale of the Bafana Bafana international.

"It is an open secret that we have engaged Wits over Vilakazi, but we were turned down several times," Motaung told City Press.

"They told us there is a club that has offered them R11m plus a striker, and we don't have that kind of money for one player.

"I told them that, if I were in their shoes, I'd accept that offer."
