Breaking: Chiefs Announce New Player Deal

As reported by the Siya crew yesterday, Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed a new deal for one of their star players by extending his contract by a further two years. 

Leonardo Castro has agreed new terms that will see him remain at Naturena until June 2022, the club said in a brief statement on its Twitter account and on the website.

The Colombian joined Amakhosi from Mamelodi Sundowns in January 2018, but was approaching the expiry of that initial contract at the end of next month. It is understood the striker was keen to explore his options in Europe, but with the Coronavirus pandemic halting the world's movements, Castro has opted to remain a Glamour Boy. 

He told the club website: “Thank you so much. I am very happy with the chairman Kaizer Motaung and the club. I am also grateful to continue to wear the Gold & Black. This is sensitive for me because I have not won a trophy yet with the team. And to leave without a gold medal would be a defeat for me." 

With Chiefs currently top of the Absa Premiership table, Castro expressed his desire to be a champion at Naturena, something he experienced with Sundowns in 2016. 

“I wish to win something. And I think with the squad we have at the moment; we are capable of doing well. My family is excited about this development. We are happy to remain in South Africa. Thank you once more to the chairman and the club," he was quoted as saying.
