AmaZulu Deny Baloyi Transfer Link

AmaZulu have denied that they will be making a move for Kaizer Chiefs central midfielder, Lucky Baloyi, when the transfer window re-opens in January next year.

The club were linked with a move for the 22-year-old earlier in the season, however, it now seems that Usuthu aren’t interested in bringing the player to Durban.

Baloyi hasn’t seen much game time for Kaizer Chiefs this season and it was thought that a loan move to AmaZulu might be on the cards. However, AmaZulu Managing Director, Graham O’Connor, has rubbished the club having any interest in signing Baloyi. However, he did reveal that Usuthu were searching for a central midfielder to play in the holding role as a replacement for Letladi Madubanya, although he made it clear Baloyi wasn’t a target.

Soccer-Laduma had previously reported in edition 849 on Madubanya’s falling out with coach Craig Rosslee. The pair had an argument at training and now it seems the 29-year-old will be transfer-listed and sent packing in January. It appears to make sense that Baloyi isn’t a target for AmaZulu as he is more of a box-to-box midfielder, rather than a specialist destroyer in front of the back four.

In addition, Chiefs now seem more likely than ever to keep Baloyi at the club for the foreseeable future. Chiefs face a taxing CAF Champions League programme in 2014 and letting the Limpopo-born midfielder go seems a remote possibility.

O’Connor explained AmaZulu’s position on Baloyi to the Siya crew, “Yes, we are targeting a player who can play in central midfield. But we’ll wait for the transfer window as far as that goes. Baloyi isn’t in the equation. We’re discussing a few targets because everyone knows Madubanya’s gone. We need someone in the defensive midfield position. That’s what we’re looking for.”
