Chiefs & Castro Find A Way….

There is some movement at Kaizer Chiefs regarding one of this season’s key players and his current contract situation.

Over the last several months, the Siya crew has reported that striker Leonardo Castro would be making a big decision regarding his future at Naturena and that the club had expressed a keen interest in getting him to remain there beyond June 30.

It’s the date when the Colombian’s contract runs out, and both parties have been locked in negotiations since November last year.

Castro was put on the transfer list by Chiefs at the end of the previous season – coach Ernst Middendorp unsure about his overall contribution following a disappointing campaign not just for the player but for the club as well.

He did have offers from North Africa, but they did not meet Amakhosi’s valuation of R4-million for Castro and any potential deal fell through.

The start of the 2019/20 season signalled a big U-turn by Chiefs on the player, and it is understood he and Chiefs – despite the challenges caused by the Coronavirus pandemic – have agreed a deal in principle.

The rest of the details still need to be ironed out.

Castro, who turned 31 last week, has made 19 appearances in all competitions this season and scored eight goals, forming a deadly partnership with new arrival Samir Nurkovic to push Chiefs to the top of the Absa Premiership table.
