Team of Choice denies that inspirational skipper Morton is on SuperSport’s radar

MARITZBURG United have denied that their inspirational skipper has been targeted by title-chasing SuperSport United.

According to reports, Team of Choice captain Michael Morton was part of a swop deal that took Kurt Lentjies from the national capital to the KwaZulu-Natal capital.

But club manager Quintin Jettoo denied that they could lose the former Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits player.

Reports stated that Morton was expected in Pretoria to conclude the deal by the end of the week.

Following the signing of Lentjies earlier this week, United were linked with Wits winger Bongolwethu Jayiya as they aim to improve the squad in a bid to fight off relegation and climb up the Premier League log.

Jettoo told The Witness that they had spoken to the Johannesburg club over Jayiya’s availability, but added that there had been no concrete offer for the 23-year-old player at this stage.

But, signing Jayiya will prove to be hard for United with Ajax Cape Town reportedly also interested in his services.

The Team of Choice have already lost the services of Arthur Bartman and Fadlu Davids following the sacking of ex-coach Clinton Larsen. The former Kaizer Chiefs number two who hung up his boots at the end of last season to become United’s goalkeeper coach recently came out of retirement to join struggling Golden Arrows, while Davids reunited with former mentor Ernst Middendorp. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
