The Siya crew reported earlier this week that Amakhosi had inquired about right back Keenan Phillips, who worked with coach Gavin Hunt at Bidvest Wits prior to the status of the club being sold and the team renamed TTM last year.

What’s now been confirmed by SSU chief executive officer Stan Matthews is that Cape Town City also showed an interest in the junior international.

“Well, there were inquiries from Chiefs and Cape Town City. But we are not selling to anyone. He (Phillips) is a special young talent with a great future ahead of him,” the Matsatsantsa boss told the Siya crew.

It remains to be seen whether both clubs will try test their rivals’ resolve in the coming months given that, in football, everyone has a price.

But SSU don’t have a track record of releasing their young players unless it is to move them abroad, similarly to how they have fended off interest in Teboho Mokoena and Sipho Mbule up to now as they hope the duo can sign in Europe.

Phillips has been a regular feature under coach Kaitano Tembo so far this season, getting in more minutes than he ever managed as a rookie at Wits.
