More Contract Questions, But Chiefs Jet Out

Kaizer Chiefs jetted out to Morocco on Wednesday ahead of facing Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final this weekend, but there remains questions over the future of a handful of their first team players.

Despite the veil of secrecy from the club around who will leave Naturena post their biggest fixture yet, the Siya crew has been able to confirm that every player whose contract expired on June 30 has either been offered a short-term deal for a further four weeks or had the options on their initial agreements exercised.

According to insiders, goalkeeper Brylon Petersen, who has been an understudy to Itumeleng Khune, Daniel Akpeyi and Bruce Bvuma, has also put pen to paper on a month long contract and is part of the travelling squad to Casablanca.

He is unlikely to play, given he is further down the pecking order, but Petersen remains cover in case he is needed.

The Siya crew reported back in April that Petersen was headed for the exit at the end of the season, with Amakhosi ushering in new goalkeeper Brandon Petersen, who is expected to fight for the No.1 jersey alongside Khune and Akpeyi.

Bvuma, also understood to be out of contract, is expected to renew and then go out on loan, unless coach Stuart Baxter opts to have four goalies in his squad next season.  

It now remains to be seen when the Glamour Boys will make announcements regarding the out of contract brigade, having already confirmed six new signings last week.

What the Siya crew can confirm is that all the players whose contracts ended last month have signed short-term agreements at the very least.
