As reported in this week’s Soccer Laduma newspaper that came out today (Wednesday), Levy Mokgothu is likely to be on his way out of Kaizer Chiefs at the end of the season, with the club having already started a search for a replacement left back.
Having struggled with form and unsatisfactory performances in some of the games this season by their standards, Chiefs are expected to make changes to strengthen the squad for the 2016/17 season.
The club’s chairman, Kaizer Motaung, has admitted that they will be reinforcing the squad with new players for next season. Mokgothu, 26, has never made an official appearance for the Chiefs’ first team, since joining the club in 2014.
This season he featured in some of the games for the Chiefs’ MultiChoice Diski Challenge side under Ace Khuse and his technical team.
In January, the player was linked with a loan move away from Chiefs, with both the University of Pretoria and Chippa United said to have shown interest, but the former Moroka Swallows left back failed to seal a move to any of the clubs.
As predicted by the Siya crew in February already, the Amakhosi are unlikely to keep the player beyond the current Absa Premiership campaign, as he is clearly not in the plans for Steve Komphela and his technical team.
Chiefs are believed to have renewed their interest in Sifiso Hlanti.
However, the left back who is on loan at Bidvest Wits from AmaZulu, could be interested in signing a permanent deal with the Sturrock Park outfit, after his performances and consistency under Gavin Hunt earned him a Bafana Bafana call up.
