AmaZulu team manager Qedi Dlamini says the Premier Soccer League club are not interested in selling Bongi Ntuli.

The 28-year-old former Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns striker has been in exceptional form for Usuthu this season.

Despite the club struggling in the Premiership, Ntuli has been a shining light, with his performances not going unnoticed by other clubs.

But Dlamini says Ntuli, who has scored 12 of all AmaZulu's 24 goals this term, is not for sale.

Dlamini was quoted on IOL as saying: "Bongi is not for sale.

"While Bongi was still at Mamelodi Sundowns, he was always calling me telling me about his desire to come back home.

"That’s why it was easy to get him on loan from Sundowns and when an opportunity came for Bongi to be our player on a permanent basis, it was very easy (to sign him).

"We negotiated and we agreed on his personal terms easily. He has got a long-term contract with us. I believe this is the first season where he has done well."

Dlamini added: "I want to put it straight: He is not for sale. There’s no-one who has contacted us about the services of Bongi Ntuli.

"If we do get to a point where we have to part ways or transfer him, it won’t be a cheap transaction. That one is for sure; it won’t be a cheap transaction because he is worth over R10m now. He is an investment for us."
