With this breaking news rapidly unravelling, the latest news reaching the desk of the Siya crew is that Amakhosi and Stellies are close to reaching an agreement with regards to a transfer fee for the player.
The finer details of the transfer between the two clubs is being kept under wraps at this stage, but according to Siya sources, Chiefs are lining up a substantial offer for the Bafana Bafana striker.
Stellies have already agreed the transfer of another player in Zitha Kwinika to Chiefs.
Given that the two clubs are close to an agreement, much will depend on whether the player will agree on personal terms with Chiefs and if he is open to making the switch to Naturena.
Du Preez has scored nine goals and registered three assists in 29 games in all competitions for Stellenbosch this season, which has seen him earn a call-up to coach Hugo Broos’ preliminary World Cup qualifier squad.
