Amakhosi have no intentions to sell their best marksman from last season despite continued rumours that he could leave the club
Kaizer Chiefs have moved swiftly to dismiss media reports that Samir Nurkovic could be sold ahead of the start of the new season.
Unconfirmed reports surfaced on Monday that Pitso Mosimane was interested in luring the Serbian striker to Al Ahly.
On Tuesday, Saudi Arabian outfit Abha FC were rumoured to have tabled an offer for the services of the Amakhosi marksman.
However, the club said no club has come forward to express interest in the 28-year-old.
The Soweto giants further stated that they cannot let go of Nurkovic at this stage, suggesting that any offer for the speedy attacker will be rejected.
This 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 the start of the season as a relatively unknown to the majority of South African football fans.
But he took the PSL by storm, scoring 14 goals across all competitions on his debut season in SA to finish as the club’s top goalscorer.
He also provided six assists in the 36 matches he played for the Glamour Boys.
