Young Africans have responded to a report indicating Kaizer Chiefs have signed their star striker Fiston Mayele.

Nuhu Adams of Ghana Soccer Net broke the news when he wrote on his official Twitter page on Thursday morning which prompted a response from Young Africans chief executive officer Senzo Mazingiza.

Mazingiza dismissed the report by indicating that Amakhosi must have signed the prolific striker magically.

Chiefs sporting director Kaizer Motaung Junior responded to the former Orlando Pirates administrative manager's tweets by describing it as 'silly' reporting.

The DR Congo international was one of Yanga's star players as they clinched the 2021-22 Tanzanian Premier League title.

His exploits attracted interest from both Chiefs and Pirates as the two Soweto giants looked to reinforce their striking departments.

Mazingiza confirmed the interest from South Africa's two biggest football clubs, but he made it clear that the player is not for sale.

Mayele was the second-highest scorer in the Tanzania Premier League this season with 16 goals.
