Morena was rumoured to be on Kaizer Chiefs’ wanted list at the end of the season, with reports suggesting that coach Steve Komphela likes the midfielder and wants him to play for Amakhosi in the 2016/17 season. Sundowns were also said to be interested in him.

But then there were reports that the midfielder had extended his stay at Celtic. Morena disputes these reports.

“I have not extended my contract I was shocked when (Celtic) they released that statement, I pray that things work out for me. Sundowns are in Talks with my agent, they are playing in the Caf Champions league. My agent is speaking with Sundowns and Chiefs,” Morena told SABC Sport.

Morena is currently in Rio de Janeiro to represent South Africa in the Olympic Games.
