Chiefs Players Due For A Contract Extension

Kaizer Chiefs’ management has been through an on-going process of tying up their players’ futures, as there are some whose contracts are set to expire in June this year.

Today, the Fan Park crew looks at which players are due for a potential contract extension.

Itumeleng Khune

Alongside Oupa Manyisa of Orlando Pirates, the goalkeeper’s speculative future was one that hogged all the headlines. With a move to Mamelodi Sundowns said to be a signature away, Khune is in his final six months of his deal, but it still remains unknown as to what he will do. Will he stay or will he go? 

Tefu Mashamaite

The Chiefs defender has only been on the books of Bidvest Wits and Amakhosi, and he too is in his final six months of his contract. Despite reports having suggested that a two-year deal has been agreed upon, the club is yet to confirm that Tefu has indeed penned in a deal officially. Nonetheless, the new deal, when finally concluded, is expected to tie him down until 2017. 

Josta Dladla

The tireless midfielder is now nearing the end of his career. He was expected to call it quits at Chiefs last season, when his deal came to an end, but with the club offering a one-year extension, Dladla’s deal will now end in June 2015. Due to a lack of game time this season, however, it seems unlikely that he will be offered a new contract by the club. 

George Lebese

It seems almost ludicrous that Lebese’s contract is in the final six months, despite enjoying some of the best form of his career so far. Chiefs, however, do have a two-year option on Milkshake’s deal, and he is expected to commit his future to the club that he has spent his whole career with. 

Mandla Masango

After initially being deemed surplus to requirements at Chiefs, the midfielder has proven to be one of the bright sparks in this energetic team this season. His excellent form has seen him linked to a contract renewal, but Bobby Motaung and company are yet to convey any official word on the scenario. 

Matthew Rusike

The Zimbabwean-born striker has not had the most fruitful time on the field with Chiefs, but is still admired by some of the fans. With pace, physicality and some promising skill in his feet, he has not yet had the chance to prove his worth at Naturena. As a result, his contract might not be renewed, which leaves him with six months to agree a pre-contract with a club or walk as a free agent.

Khosi fans, which players do you think are deserving of a contract?
