Kaizer Chiefs

Agent Confirms Chiefs Contract Clause

It’s now been confirmed to the Siya crew that Kaizer Chiefs are firmly in control regarding the fate of one of their key players.

When he signed for Amakhosi in 2019, the club announced then that striker Samir Nurkovic had signed a three-year deal that would expire in June next year.

That would indicate the Serbian forward, who is currently out injured and only expected back on the pitch around January, has entered the final few months of his Chiefs tenure and should be preparing for talks over his future.

But his agent has revealed why there is no urgency for the club to hurry discussions over a possible new agreement in the coming weeks.

“Samir is focusing on his recovery at the moment. But yes, I can confirm that his contract is up at the end of the season. Chiefs do have an option to extend it for another year, but it’s too early to have those discussions,” the player’s representative, Dajan Simac, told the Siya crew.  

Chiefs did have a contract impasse with Nurkovic almost exactly a year ago, when then-coach Gavin Hunt suggested he’d omitted the striker from his squad because there were doubts over his future at the time.

Nurkovic had attracted interest from North Africa and the Gulf region, but in December last year Amakhosi moved swiftly to offer him an improved deal.  

But there was no official announcement, and it has now been confirmed that the striker has an option clause – meaning it’s up to Chiefs to decide whether to keep him at the end of the current season or offload him.
