Kaizer Chiefs left-back, Jimmy Jambo, will be expected to report for the club's pre-season training which begins from June 20. This is according to the player's agent, Ralph Nkomo.
A big question mark has hung over the Zimbabwean for some time with regard to his future at Naturena. Jambo suffered a horrendous knee injury towards the middle portion of the 2012/13 season, and the player hasn't featured in any official matches for the club since that point.
He did make a brief cameo appearance in the Nedbank Cup against a Ke Yona team earlier in 2013/14, although that has been his only contribution in nearly two years of action.
The 26-year-old is contracted to Chiefs until June 2015, although there has been speculation for some time that he could leave the club during the July transfer window. As reported in edition 873 of Soccer Laduma, a compensation fee would have to be paid to the defender if that was the case.
Nonetheless, Nkomo has explained that Jambo is expected to return to pre-season training in late June where he will be given a chance to prove his fitness.
He told the Siya crew, "Jimmy has been told that they will see him for pre-season training. I've heard nothing official from the club as yet. I think they'll see how fit he is in pre-season and then take it from there. I'm friends with Bobby Motaung (Chiefs' Team Manager), he will always tell you like it is if your player isn't needed. He won't beat around the bush and so far I've heard nothing."
