Baroka FC chairman Kurishi Mphahlele has addressed the speculation linking former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana to his club.

The 36-years-old Kekana, who left Sundowns in September 2021, has been linked with different clubs, including AmaZulu FC, SuperSport United and Baroka, before and during this January transfer window.

Mphahlele has now denied that talks have not taken place with Kekana and his representatives on signing for Baroka.

"Nothing is happening between us and Hlompho Kekana, we've never spoken to him or anything. It’s just rumours nothing else," Mphahlele told Soccer Laduma.

"But as a Limpopo legend, we would welcome him anytime, and if he is open to join us, we will definitely take him anytime; who can say no to Hlompho? we will take him if there's a chance."

Mphahlele added that they had promoted two young, exciting wingers into the squad and saw great potential for their futures.

"We've promoted two youngsters; they are both 17-years-old, they've been travelling with the club since December. Kabelo Kgosidsile and Thabang Moabelo. They very good, Kabelo also represented national under-17 team," he added.
