Why Talks For Chiefs Stopper Halted

His Kaizer Chiefs contract is set to expire at the end of the season, so what has the lockdown meant for the Amakhosi goalkeeper looking at the way forward?

Brylon Petersen returned to Chiefs last year after injuries to Itumeleng Khune and Bruce Bvuma saw the club bring back a familiar face at Naturena, with the 24-year-old being seen as a solid squad player that could come in and do a job if called upon.

Daniel Akpeyi has maintained his place as Ernst Middendorp’s number one up until this point, even ousting Khune from that role, and it remains to be seen whether Petersen will remain with the club or assess options elsewhere if things don’t move forward.

The player’s agent, Modise Sefume, has told the Siya crew that talks will only resume at a later date, with the Coronavirus outbreak causing understandable delays in the situation.

Speaking to the crew in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, Sefume said, “The lockdown has stalled our efforts to discuss his immediate future with Kaizer Chiefs…

“Brylon is an extremely talented keeper and we look forward to the resumption of the league at a later stage so we can finalise the next chapter of his career.”
