Amakhosi’s New R55m Signings…
Kaizer Chiefs ended up making seven new signings before the transfer window slammed shut last week, but just how much are their fresh faces worth?

The Glamour Boys landed the signatures of Khama Billiat, Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana, Letlhogonolo Mirwa, Virgil Vries, Mario Booysen, Godfrey Walusimbi and Lebogang Manyama over the last couple of months, though so far only Billiat has been able to make an impact.
According to transfermarkt.com, those seven players have a market value of upwards of £2.8m (around R55m) at present, though ‘Dax’ and Mirwa don’t currently have a recorded value (possibly due to the league that they were previously playing in).
Understandably it is Billiat who makes up the bulk of the amount, with the website stating that his market value is just under £1.7m (around R32m), while Booysen is reportedly the second most valuable at £450,000 (R8.7m).
Chiefs managed to land Billiat, Mirwa, Vries, Manyama and potentially Andrianarimanana for free, while the situation with Booysen is unknown. With regards to Walusimbi, it has been reported in Kenya that the club paid Gor Mahia around R1.7m for his services.
Which new Glamour Boy do you think will make the biggest impact long-term?
