Celtic deny chasing Botswana star
Bloemfontein Celtic have denied chasing a Kaizer Chiefs target, Botswana international winger Joel Mogorosi.
Mogorosi has been the subject of much interest from South Africa, with Platinum Stars said to also be keeping an eye on the player, but having recently signed for FC Platinum in Zimbabwe, any move for him would be complicated.
It would require his Botswana club, Mochadi Centre Chiefs, to cancel the deal with the Zimbabweans, something that could be possible given that any offer from South Africa would likely dwarf the P400 000 that FC Platinum paid for the player.
But Celtic CEO Khumbalani Konco has denied that his side will make a move, while FC Platinum say they are still expecting the player to join them around July 15.
"Save for the stories we are reading in the papers, they have not communicated with us. I don't think they are aware that Joel is our player," FC Platinum club secretary Philimon Muvengwa told Mmegi Sport.
“We paid for the player in full and we have signed contracts - Chiefs are aware of that. The player has a contract with us so he is ours. We expect him in Zvishavane next month around July 15."
