Chiefs Rushing On Mphela Deal

With just hours to go before the January transfer window slams shut, the Siya crew understands that Kaizer Chiefs are rushing to try and bring in Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Katlego Mphela. The player has already signed a pre-contract to join Chiefs in June, however the club are eager to bring him in immediately before the close of the transfer window at 5pm today.

The crew can report that Chiefs are still locked in negotiations to make the deal happen. Nonetheless, with news being confirmed that Bloemfontein Celtic's Thabo Nthethe will be joining Downs on a four-year deal, it could be that there isn't enough time for the administration of the Mphela deal to be completed and pushed through.

In addition, a seemingly minor squabble between Chiefs Team Manager, Bobby Motaung, and Downs' Chief Scout, Trott Moloto, could also potentially derail any deal going through before 5pm today.

Nonetheless, the 29-year-old's possible early arrival at Naturena could be a boost for the Glamour Boys, as it could mean the club have another proven weapon at their disposal in the striking department. On the other hand, Downs could perhaps choose not to release Mphela in January so as to not give their title rivals any extra advantage.

The crew will monitor any any further developments on the Mphela deal closely. Watch this space!
