Manyama To Join Chiefs In January

Ajax Cape Town midfielder Lebogang Manyama is set to join Kaizer Chiefs in January, Ajax have confirmed.

Manyama has been one of the most consistent performers for Ajax this season, as Muhsin Ertugral and his team attempt to climb up the Absa Premiership table.

The 23-year-old scored two goals for Ajax in the team’s 3-1 win over Maritzburg United last week, taking his tally for the season to four.

In a statement on Ajax's official website, executive director Ari Efstathiou said, “We have agreed and accepted the offer made by Kaizer Chiefs for Manyama’s services.

"As new management, we indicated at the start of the season that we would like to retain our players so as to build a strong and competitive team. 

"We offered Lebo a new lucrative contract however the player indicated that he would like to make a move and start a new adventure in his life.

"With Lebo’s contract coming to an end in June 2014, we had no alternative but to consider all our options.

"Kaizer Chiefs was first off the block, tabling an offer that was fair and reasonable.

"We are absolutely sure that Lebo will play his heart out in the remaining two home games against Bloemfontein Celtic and Platinum Stars next week and will leave the club that launched his career with a flurry of goals.

"We appreciate Lebo’s contribution to the success of Ajax Cape Town during his time at Ikamva and we wish him well for his future."

The move is subject to the player agreeing personal terms with Amakhosi.
