In-demand Black Leopards star Siphelele Ntshangase says he still has a contract to honour at the club and will not be making any move away soon.

Ntshangase, who suffered an injury blow in January which ruled him out for the rest of the season, has been reported to be on the wanted list of big teams in the Absa Premiership, particularly Kaizer Chiefs, who were said to be favourites to sign him.

“I still have two years left in my contract at Leopards, which I have to honour. I don’t know anything about any teams wanting me, I just only hear from people asking where will I will be playing next season, but the truth is no one has ever approached me,” Ntshangase said in an interview with the SABC.

“I am glad to be back in training. I’m fully fit and ready to kick-start the season.”

Before the injury, the KwaZulu-Natal-born player was part of coach Owen da Gama’s Under-23 team, and he also featured for Bafana Bafana.

The midfielder says he was sad to have missed out on the Olympics, but added that it is all in the past.

Ntshangase said he would be concentrating on playing regularly and to get back to the senior national team set-up.
