Players Chiefs Were Linked With But Never Signed

Each and every transfer window sees an influx of potential names that could head to Naturena, but some don’t get to confirm their arrival.

Here are some players that were linked with Chiefs, but never signed… 

Tendai Ndoro 
Similarly to what Think Skull & General Signdowns mentioned in regards to their clubs, Ndoro was also linked to Chiefs. However, with the club having pinned down the services of Siphelele Mthembu and David Zulu of late, the Zimbabwean did not arrive.

Lebogang Manyama
This was probably one of the most controversial transfer stories at the club. Two seasons ago, the club announced that the Ajax Cape Town man would be joining Chiefs on a pre-contract deal… The club was forced to retract that statement after Manyama opted to sign for SuperSport United. 

Cuthbert Malajila 
The powerful striker was another name that was being headhunted by Khosi management, but it seems that was all speculation, as he has been with Sundowns for two years now.

Keagan Dolly 
The Ajax Cape Town man admitted at the end of last season that Chiefs would be the club he would prefer to sign for if he was to return to Gauteng… However, no such deal has transpired. He instead re-signed for Sundowns at the start of this season, before being sent back on-loan to Ajax. 

Papi Zothwane
Having been the undisputed star at Lamontville Golden Arrows in the mid-2000s, Zothwane was controversially unveiled as a Kaizer Chiefs player in 2006. However, a contractual dispute between the two clubs meant the then 26-year old stayed at Abafana Bes'thende until he joined Mamelodi Sundowns at a later stage.

David Beckham
This one has your attention, right? Can you believe the Englishman was linked to Chiefs for what was said to be a cameo appearance of ten games or so? Rumours escalated in 2012 and Chiefs were forced to deny the reports. What a signing that would’ve been!

Khosi fans, which player would you have liked to see at Naturena?
