Baroka FC chairman Kurishi Mphahlele has revealed that there has been no contact with former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana, but if the veteran is open to a move the chairman says they will definitely take him.
Kekana has been the subject of reported interest from a number of clubs in the January transfer window with SuperSport United and AmaZulu FC thought to be the leading contenders to snap up the midfielder who has been a free agent since being released by Downs in November.

Reports have also linked Baroka to the midfielder but Bakgaga chairman has labelled the reports as rumours, but admitted they will be open to signing Kekana if he wanted to come to the club.
“Nothing is happening between us and Hlompho Kekana, we’ve never spoken to him or anything, it just rumours nothing else,” Mphahlele told SoccerLaduma.
“But as a Limpopo legend we would welcome him anytime and if he is open to join us we will definitely take him anytime, who can say no to Hlompho?, we will take him if there’s a chance.”
