Kaizer Chiefs confirmed midweek that Bernard Parker’s stay has been extended until, at least, June 2021, and Soccer Laduma takes a look at 10 players from Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates who are approaching the end of their contracts.
Sibusiso Vilakazi is currently in the final six months of his contract, however, Sundowns have an added two-year option set in place on his deal and have until the end of May to exercise it before he becomes a free agent.
Lucky Mohomi is another player whose contract will expire on June 30, this year, while Sundowns also have an option on his deal.
Thela Ngobeni’s stay with Sundowns will come to an end on June 30, this year, however, there has been no talk about an extended deal as the player continues on his struggle for game-time.
Ryan Moon, Hendrick Ekstein and Joseph Malongoane will all see their deals come to an end at the end of the season, with indications that Chiefs are in the process of making decisions about their immediate future.
Gustavo Paez on the other hand, is set to leave Chiefs as a free agent, after Siya sources indicated that the player turned down the opportunity to have his stay at Naturena extended.
Abbubaker Mobara, Happy Jele and Jackson Mabokgwane are also in the final six months of their stay at the club.
As things stand, the Bucs are yet to open talks with the respective parties, although a decision about Jele’s immediate future is set to be made in the coming weeks.
Now, it remains to be seen who of these 10 players will remain at their respective clubs beyond the current 2018/19 season.
