Head coach Owen da Gama has ruled out the sale of highly-rated duo Peter Shalulile and Mothobi Mvala.

The Highlands Park coach says that while a number of enquiries have been made for the pair, it is important for the stability of the club to retain their best players.

While striker Shalulile has been excellent up front for the Lions of the North, with 15 goals in all competitions this season, Mvala has been influential from midfield.

Speaking to TimesLive, Da Gama said: "There are clubs that have come and spoken to us about both of them, but we have no intention of letting them go.

"It is only our second season back in the PSL and we want to root ourselves in this league first before we consider selling players.

"It is important for the stability of the club."

The Highlands boss added: "It is something the club takes very seriously, to make sure we secure our best players and we sit down well in advance [of their contracts' expiry] to plot our way forward. All our top players are very well looked after."
