However, according to a source in the know, Maluleka has since turned down one of Chiefs’ freshest offers and has explained why.

The source revealed that while the two parties have agreed financial terms in principle, Amakhosi are offering the player a short-term deal while Maluleka is keen on a long-term contract.

Maluleka wants to remain at Chiefs beyond the current season, although it remains to be seen whether the club will meet his demands.

Chiefs head coach, Ernst Middendorp recently opened up about Maluleka’s contract situation saying that he hopes it gets wrapped up soon.

“I think one of the most important parameter to how we are dealing with the season is that we have consistency in terms of our set-up and core players. For us, it is each and everybody, therefore I hope that George’s contract is wrapped up as quick as possible and get the final discussions done, he is very crucial for Kaizer Chiefs – a number of players,” he said.
