Cape Town City chairman John Comitis says they have no intention of selling the likes of Ayanda Patosi, Kermit Erasmus and Ednilson Dove.

The 2019-20 Absa Premiership season was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic in South Africa.

Recent reports have linked Thabo Nodada with Kaizer Chiefs, and striker Kermit Erasmus and defender Ednilson Dove to Mamelodi Sundowns.

‘There is a lot of speculation about players. I think at this point [due to the lockdown] we’re obviously consolidating our position,’ Comitis told Sport24.

‘We are not doing too much because we want to also make sure that we can sustain the structures that we have.

‘Depending on how things unfold in the next two months, we will make certain decisions. We have no intention of releasing [Ednilson] Dove, Kermit [Erasmus], even [Ayanda] Patosi.’

Comitis also commented on Ayanda Patosi, currently on loan at Foolad Khuzestan FC and who recently stated that he wants a permanent move to the Iranian club.

‘But I know Patosi has been playing overseas – the benefit to him is extremely high and we wouldn’t stand in his way as long as it works for the club as well,’ he continued.

‘My intention is still to keep a very strong squad and to have a team that can compete.’

He added:’We’ve wobbled tremendously this year, not because we did not have the quality, but things did just not work out the way we planned.’

‘Also, a lot of injuries – five operations on key players. So, bouncing back to next season, we’re very focused being back in that hunting pack.’
