Kaizer Chiefs have moved swiftly to dismiss media reports that Samir Nurkovic could be sold ahead of the start of the new season.
On Tuesday, Saudi Arabian outfit Abha FC were also rumoured to have tabled an offer for the services of the Amakhosi striker.
However, the club said no club has come forward to express interest in the 28-year-old.
Chiefs further stated they cannot let go of Nurkovic at this stage, suggesting that any offer for the speedy attacker will be rejected.

This is because they are still waiting for the outcome of their appeal for the two-window transfer ban imposed by Fifa.
Amakhosi appeared before the Court of Arbitration for Sport on September 9 but they are yet to receive communication on whether or not their ban will be suspended.
Nurkovic arrived at Naturena at the start of the 2019-20 season as a relative unknown to the majority of South African football fans.
