Bonginkosi Ntuli’s agent has provided an update as the sought-after AmaZulu striker is consistently being linked with a move away from the KwaZulu-Natal giants.
Throughout the 2019/20 season, Ntuli has been linked with Orlando Pirates among other clubs as he has been scoring goals week-in and week-out for Usuthu.
The 29-year-old finished the season with 13 goals, and with both Kermit Erasmus and Peter Shalulile having been snapped up by Mamelodi Sundowns after finishing on 13 and 16 goals for Cape Town City and Highlands Park respectively, Ntuli has also been strongly linked with a move in this transfer window.
However, with AmaZulu now under new President in Sandile Zungu who has stated that he wants to see the Durban-based club competing to be among the top clubs in Mzansi, indications are that Ntuli is unlikely to leave despite having reportedly made a request to move on under the previous management.
Contacted for comment, Ntuli’s representative Mandla Mthembu confirmed to the Siya crew that talks are ongoing between the club and the former Sundowns player.
“We are talking to the new management and so far we are on the same page and the talks are ongoing. There’s progress, but like I say we are still talking,” said Mthembu, suggesting that the forward will possibly be staying with Usuthu on an improved deal.
