Flames midfielder Robert Ng’ambi says he is sick and tired of perennial reports linking him with a move away from his current South Africa employers, Platinum Stars football club.
“It’s the same thing all the time. There are always reports that this and that team is interested in me. Truth is that following the expiry of my two-year contract with Stars, I am serving out the last year of my optional contract with them,” he told The Nation in Blantyre on Wednesday.
Ng’ambi added that he was deliberately burying his head in the sand amid massive interest from other South Africa premiership clubs for fear of losing focus on his career.
Ng’ambi, who is in the country awaiting renewal of his work permit in South Africa, said while other clubs want to buy him, time was not ripe for him to decide.
“My job is to just play and the rest of the office work is for my agent. My agent might be receiving calls from interested teams, but it is up to him, my current employers and the potential suitors to agree then ask for my opinion. Until discussions reach that stage, it would be unwise for me to comment,” he explained.
SuperSport United are favourites to sign him. The midfielder’s agent Tim Sukazi told kickoff.com on Tuesday that several clubs are eyeing the player, who is serving out the last year on his contract with Stars.
“Ng’ambi will remain with Platinum Stars for now. You can underline for now. There will always be interest because Ng’ambi is a top-level and professional player. People are calling every day and that’s why I am saying with one year left on his contract, anything is possible,” Sukazi was quoted as saying.
Commenting on growing interest in Ng’ambi last month, Stars media and marketing officer Tebogo Mochadibane also played down reports linking Ng’ambi with a swap deal involving SuperSport’s Michael Morton.
“These are just the rumours that you will always read in the newspaper during this time of the year. There is nothing official and Robert will remain our player,” Mochadibane said.
