Chiefs Hope For Youth Resurgence As PSL Trio Give Chase?
Kaizer Chiefs could send young striker, Emmanuel Letlotlo, out on loan for part – or all – of the 2018/19 season, with the forward having already started to attract attention.
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, a trio of Absa Premiership clubs are believed to have made contact with the Amakhosi regarding the 22-year-old in an attempt to add some firepower ahead of the new season.
While the names of the three clubs remain unknown at this stage, it is thought that the Amakhosi are open to the idea of letting ‘Adebayor’ leave the club, though not permanently, as he looks to get his match sharpness back after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
The club has since gone on to confirm that there are talks over Letlotlo's future, with Motaung telling their official website that “discussions are underway to send Emmanuel Letlotlo on loan. We will reveal the details as soon as the deal is finalised.”
Chiefs could be hoping that a loan move for Letlotlo could see him start to fulfil at least part of the promise that he showed before being promoted to the first team, with young Ryan Moon having overshadowed him since a bad knee injury last year.
The Siya crew will continue to look into the matter to figure out which three clubs are interested in landing the young forward.
