It seems unlikely that Kaizer Chiefs will offer a contract to on-trial Mozambique international, Sonito, with the player yet to join up with their first team.
The 28-year-old forward began his time at Naturena earlier this month as the club sought to run the rule over the striker, but now, over a week later, he is still with their reserves.
While it is certain that Chiefs, who have already filled their five-man foreign quota, would not be able to register the forward this season in the PSL, there is a slight chance they could use him solely for the CAF Champions League.
However, with that seemingly unlikely, and the player yet to make it into the club’s first team training sessions, it looks as though he will not be landing a contract with the reigning PSL champions.
Also, with Chiefs saying that the arrival of Ajax Cape Town attacking midfielder, Lebogang Manyama, is imminent, it looks even more likely that Sonito won’t be signing on.
Chiefs had been looking to possibly loan out Jimmy Jambo in order to free up a foreign spot in their ranks, however the PSL rules state that only five non-South Africans may be registered per club in a season, even if they are later unregistered.
