Luke Le Roux has confirmed that despite being linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs this season, there was no official approach from the Soweto giants.
The 23-year-old South African midfielder is currently contracted to Dutch club FC Volendam for who he signed on an initial three-year contract with the option for a further season in August this year.

He joined the Eredivisie team from Swedish side Varbergs BoIS after leaving SuperSport United in 2018.
He also spent time on loan at Stellenbosch FC.
Amakhosi were reportedly interested in Le Roux’s services, who has been capped five times to date by Bafana Bafana.
However, Le Roux has played down the potential return to South Africa at this stage of his career.
According to the FARPost website, Le Roux said: “There was never direct contact with me, might have been with the agency, but they [agency] know that I want to be in Europe for now.
“I heard of the rumours and everything, but there was no direct contact with me or my agent.”
Le Roux added: “[It] comes back to working hard for something. [You] always have to keep pushing and doing your best because you never know who is watching.
“But it feels good to know that there are big teams like Chiefs, for example, tracking you.”
Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs return to action this weekend following the FIFA international window when they host Shauwn ‘MaMkhize’ Mkhize’s Royal AM at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 16 September at 17:30.
