Kaizer Chiefs have recalled three players that had initially been sent out on loan before the start of the 2020/21 season.
As reported by the Siya crew last week, the Glamour Boys have moved swiftly to request that midfielder Ayanda Rorwana, strikers Sizwe Twala and Itumeleng Shopane return to Naturena, cutting short their spell at Swallows FC.
It was announced by Amakhosi early in October that the trio – along with Given Thibedi, would remain with the Dube Birds for another season having helped them gain promotion to the topflight in September.
Siya sources have informed the crew that Thibedi will not be going back to his parent club because he is a regular and has already featured in all three of Swallows’ DStv Premiership games so far this season.
Rorwana, Twala and Shopane have not.
Chiefs were hit with a transfer ban by FIFA back in February, and their attempts to have it overturned via an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) two months ago was dismissed by the sports tribunal.
It meant coach Gavin Hunt could not bring in new players until July 2021, but the Swallows trio can be registered as they were only on loan and already have existing long-term contracts at Chiefs from when they were promoted to the senior team.
