The Soweto giants have reportedly been chasing the services of the title-winning skipper

Bidvest Wits CEO Jose Ferreira says they have never had enquiries from Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates regarding the services of its captain Thulani Hlatshwayo.

"I’ve had numerous discussions with Orlando Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza but he has never said anything about Hlatshwayo.

“I’ve also had talks with Bobby Motaung of Kaizer Chiefs but he has never shown any interest in Hlatshwayo,” Ferreira told The Star.

The Bafana Bafana international has been a key figure in the Students walking away with their maiden PSL title last season.

“Hlatshwayo is Bidvest Wits' player. He still has a contract with us. No club has ever come to me regarding him," Ferreira stated.

African champions Mamelodi Sundowns has also been reportedly showing interest in ‘Tyson’ but to date none of them have come forward with a proposal, though the player is not for sale.

"Mamelodi Sundowns haven’t said anything to me about Hlatshwayo. Even if they did show interest, Hlatshwayo is not for sale,” Ferreira said.

The 27-year-old made 31 appearances in all competitions last season as the Students secured the PSL and MTN 8 titles.
