Chabangu's Swallows' Contract Update

Despite media speculation linking Lerato Chabangu with a move away from Moroka Swallows, it appears that his contract will not expire in June as previously reported.

It was originally thought that the 28-year-old would see his deal with the Dube Birds expire at the end of June, however his representative has explained that it will automatically extend should he play a certain amount of games this season.

The attacking midfielder has been in fine form for Swallows this season, often donning the captain’s armband, and has scored and created a number of goals as the Birds climbed their way up the PSL table.

Now, with many clubs no doubt keeping an eye on Chabangu’s availability, his representative, Glyn Binkin, has explained that he will not be going anywhere, especially not on a pre-contract or free transfer.

Speaking to the Siya crew Binkin said, “It is with interest that I have noticed the media speculation surrounding the future of Lerato Chabangu. At this stage, contrary to what has been speculated in the media, Lerato is not necessarily out of contract as at 30 June 2014, as the players contract with the club will automatically extend for a further one-year period (01 July 2014 to 30 June 2015) should he participate in a certain percentage of the club’s games during the current season, a percentage he will undoubtedly achieve. 

“Lerato is very focused on delivering success for Swallows and unwarranted speculation linking him to other clubs at this stage of the season is not fair to either his existing club, who have been very good to the player, or to the player himself, who is enjoying a good vein of form at the moment. 

“Any clubs who may be interested in acquiring the services of the player should do so through the correct and appropriate channels and contact either Swallows or myself as the player’s duly authorised representative.”

Chabangu missed Swallows’ defeat to Wits last night through suspension, however will be back for their game against Polokwane City later this month.
