Chiefs To Miss Out On Defender?

It would appear that Kaizer Chiefs would struggle in their pursuit of Sibusiso Mthethwa from Stellenbosch FC. 

This, if the Soweto giants win their appeal against the two-window FIFA transfer ban. Stellis, however, is believed to be keen on tying the player down on a new deal.   

Mthethwa has again been linked with Chiefs after his impressive campaign with the Western Cape side, in which he helped the team finish in a respectable 10th place on the log after the club's first season in the top flight.

The 29-year-old centre-back’s current deal with the Cape outfit is set to expire in June 2021, and as reported in edition 1191 of Soccer Laduma, the Mother City club is considering a new long-term deal to avoid losing him on a free.

“The plan is to offer the player a new long-term contract. He is an important member of the squad and the club is pleased with his contribution. He was a contender for the Player of the Season award,” said the source.

The indication is that Stellenbosch coach Steve Barker plans to assemble his squad for next season around a solid defensive structure, which Mthethwa could form part of.

The club has already signed former Bidvest Wits defender Zitha Macheke and goalkeeper Sage Stephens, who previously played for Cape Town City last, as part of the plan for the upcoming campaign.
