Sekese In Line To Replace Chiefs-Bound Winger?

Plans are in place for former Bidvest Wits midfielder Paseka Sekese to be offered to Swallows FC as a potential replacement for Kaizer Chiefs-bound Kgaogelo Sekgota, according to sources.

Sekese, 27, has had a solid season with Richards Bay FC after they finished third on the GladAfrica Championship log and qualified for the promotional play-offs, this after the KwaZulu-Natal outfit reached the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup and had eliminated Kaizer Chiefs along the way in their historic victory.

With Swallows expected to part ways with Kgaogelo Sekgota, as the winger signed with Chiefs last year but could not be registered because of the club’s FIFA ban, Sekese is one of the players earmarked to replace him, according to a close source.

“There are plans to offer Paseka Sekese to Swallows as they will lose the services of Kgaogelo Sekgota who is expected to join Kaizer Chiefs. Swallows coach Brandon Truter worked with the boy at Richards Bay and is aware of his capabilities. In fact, even the newly appointed Swallows assistant coach Simo Dladla worked with him, so there’s a big chance that an agreement could be reached once the parties begin with formal talks,” said the source.

Contacted for comment, the player’s representative Lizwe Mthethwa from 1017 Sports Group confirmed that Sekese will be assessing his options with more focus on a comeback to topflight football.

“Paseka Sekese’s contract with Richards Bay FC will come to an end at the end of this month and it is the player’s wish to play in the topflight again starting from next season. There is interest in him from a few clubs, but we have put everything on hold for now in order for him to focus on the upcoming play-offs for Richards Bay. You must also remember that there is a possibility for Richards Bay to get promoted via the play-offs and that’s why I am saying we have put everything on hold for now as the team’s promotion can influence our negotiations at the end of their season. We will conclude with his future as soon as the play-offs are done,” said Mthethwa.

Meanwhile, Maritzburg United and AmaZulu are believed to be also monitoring the player’s situation closely.
