Mamelodi Sundowns have signed former striker Raphael Chukwu on a one-year contract with the option of a renewal for one more year.
The Nigerian striker has recently been linked with Castle Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs, but the Amakhosi on Friday denied their interest in the 29-year-old.
Chiefs team manager Bobby Motaung said: "We have noted, with concern, growing media speculation linking Chukwu with us and we find this completely misleading as we are inundated with calls from our supporters enquiring about Chukwu.
"We want to place on record once and for all that we are not talking to Chukwu, except to say that he is the one that keeps calling the coach and myself to say he wants to join us and we don't view his option as the most suitable for us here. So anybody going about spreading such rumours should desist from doing so."
Motaung's comments came after Chukwu had earlier hinted at finishing his career at Chiefs, revealing in a radio interview that the Amakhosi "were one of Africa's best clubs and he'd be happy to join them one day".
Chukwu is the second player that has been linked to Chiefs, but has joined Sundowns instead following the highly-publicised move of Zimbabwe national captain Peter Ndlovu.
