Chiefs Announce Mphela Signing

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the signing of Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Katlego Mphela, on a pre-contract - meaning he will officially become a Chiefs player in July.

The Siya crew confirmed earlier on Tuesday that Amakhosi had agreed terms with the out-of-favour striker, who sees his current contract with the Brazilians expire at the end of the season.

Soccer-Laduma reported that Chiefs were keen to land the player in January, but would be happy to see him put pen to paper on a pre-contract.

Chiefs confirmed that Killer would move to Naturena in July via the club's official Twitter account, stating "We would like to confirm the signing of striker Katlego Mphela on a pre-contract effective July 2014."

A statement on the club's official website went into a little more detail:

"Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the signing of Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela on a pre-contract effective from July 2014. Mphela’s contract with Sundowns expires on June 2014.

"On Monday, 6 January 2014, Chiefs informed Sundowns of their intention to sign the tried and tested striker. Subsequently, on the 7th January 2014, Sundowns was informed about the agreement with the player.

"The 29-year-old striker has been the talk of the football circles with pundits speculating his move to an overseas club. Mphela has signed a three-year deal with the Amakhosi."

Though Chiefs have already got their man on a pre-contract, don't be surprised if they still attempt to negotiate a deal with Sundowns to bring the player to Naturena sooner.
