JOHANNESBURG - Gavin Hunt has poured cold water on speculation linking him with a move to Kaizer Chiefs.

With Ernst Middendorp relieved of his duties last week, speculating is mounted that the Glamour Boys are in discussions about acquiring his services.

Hunt is now a free agent after Wits sold their top-flight status at the end of the 2019/20 season.

He spoke on 702's Afternoon Drive with John Perlman about what his next step might be in football.

“Right now, John I don’t know,” he said on Monday afternoon.

“The newspapers know more about it than I do. There’s nothing confirmed. There is nothing signed or anything. It’s all just media speculation. Clubs obviously don’t have coaches, so your name will get thrown around because of the situation I have with Wits. All the players and coaching staff, we are all looking to get back into football somewhere.”

One player who has found a home followed Wits’ end of existence is Lorenzo Gordinho, who has joined Danish club Viborg FF on a deal until 2022.

“I am very excited, and I am very much looking forward to the challenge here in Viborg,” he said on joining the club.

“It is a club with ambitions and I have got a really good impression of it all. It is an exciting project with many young players and an offensive style of play, which I look forward to being a part of. We all hope that we can achieve promotion to the Super League, and I will do everything to contribute to that.”
