Chiefs Keen On Manqele

Kaizer Chiefs have rekindled their interest in signing Edward Manqele, 18 months after they lost out on him to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Amakhosi had attempted to land the 26-year-old from Free State Stars after his impressive breakthrough season in the PSL back in 2012, however they were ultimately outbid by the Brazilians and he was on his way to Chloorkop.

However, an unsuccessful season in Tshwane meant that Manqele was loaned out to Moroka Swallows at the start of the 2013/14 campaign, and he has since gone on to score five PSL goals for them.

Now, with The Glamour Boys looking to bolster their ranks ahead of next year’s CAF Champions League, they are in the market for a new striker, with both Manqele and Katlego ‘Killer’ Mphela known to be on their list of targets.

It remains to be seen whether Sundowns would be willing to part with either of the strikers to a fellow PSL title rival, however Mphela would be able to sign a pre-contract next month, with his deal expiring at the end of June.

Siya crew sources have explained that a forward, like Manqele, is one of Chiefs' priorities in the upcoming transfer window, but that head coach, Stuart Baxter, is also keen to bring in a new central midfielder.

The crew will continue to monitor Manqele’s situation, although, with his loan agreement with Swallows running until the end of the season, it is unsure as to whether he could join Chiefs in the January transfer window.
