Word reaching the Siya crew is that Kaizer Chiefs could be without one of their key players when local football returns in February.
Amakhosi, who are currently in fourth place on the DSTV Premiership standings, are believed to be sweating over midfielder Cole Alexander. The former Bidvest Wits and Polokwane City player is suspected to have dislocated his shoulder and it’s unclear at this stage how long he will be out for.
Alexander joined Amakhosi before the start of the current campaign and settled in well into the midfield alongside former Wits teammate Phathutshedzo Nange, but his progress was hampered by an injury which kept him out for a few weeks. Amakhosi are believed to be heading closer to securing the signature of AmaZulu midfielder Siyethemba Sithebe and he could be the man to come in should they secure the deal before the close of the transfer window.
Amakhosi have in recent weeks welcomed back Samir Nurkovic and Lebogang Manyama, who were both out for a good part of the first half of the campaign with injury. They are likely to be fit for when local football returns in February.
Colombian striker Leonardo Castro also returned in December for the club and is another one who will give head coach Stuart Baxter options upfront.
