Maritzburg United chief executive officer Younis Kadodia says the club are yet to receive formal offers for any of their players.

Goalkeeper Richard Ofori was the subject of reported interest of Mameldi Sundowns with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Maritzburg have though since taken up the option to extend his stay for another year.

Speaking to Far Post, Kadodia confirmed the Ofori news while adding they won't stop players from leaving the club for the right price.

He said: "Yes, it’s correct...I think it’s something that happened just before the lockdown. It’s one more season.

"I think at this stage obviously there are rumours but yes, we haven’t received any formal offers for any players.

"So, I think the internet is one thing, offers are another, so interest via the media or offers via the club."

He added: "I think we’ve never stopped any player in the past, and I don’t think we will stop anybody in the future.

"But I think at this stage it’s premature or speculation. I think once there are any offers obviously come true then we can caucus it and discuss something."
