In an apparent change of plan, Chippa United have made a decision on a young midfielder, the Siya crew has been informed.
Sources have revealed that the Eastern Cape club has decided against keeping Ronaldo Maarman, this, despite the player initially appearing to be part of the plans of coach Gavin Hunt.
Having confirmed to the Siya crew last month that he was back at the Chilli Boys and training under Hunt in preparation for the 2021/22 season after his loan at Cape Town All Stars in the GladAfrica Championship last season, Maarman has since parted ways with the Gqeberha-based outfit.
Indications from sources in the know are that the 21-year-old is likely to join Baroka FC in his next move as he aims to further his career in the topflight this season.
“Ronaldo Maarman has parted ways with Chippa United. He is working on the next move and Baroka are keen on signing him,” said the source.
Last season, while on loan at Igugu Lekapa, Maarman scored five goals and provided four assists and was one of the consistent players for the Mother City outfit.
