Chiefs Target, Mthembu's Amakhosi Debut

As revealed in 874 of today's edition of Soccer Laduma, Platinum Stars and former Orlando Pirates striker, Siphelele Mthembu, is in talks to sign a deal to join Kaizer Chiefs in the 2014/15 season.

The 26-year-old and his representatives are currently locked in talks with Chiefs, as both parties look to potentially conclude a deal. 

However, this isn't the first time that the powerful forward has been linked with a move to the Glamour Boys. Earlier in his career, he reportedly signed a deal to join the Amakhosi, however his representative was already said to have a struck deal for him to go to Pirates. 

The player even made his debut for Chiefs against Manchester United then in a Vodacom Challenge match in 2008. He replaced then-Chiefs forward, Gert Schalkwyk, as a substitute in that clash. 

Yet, Mthembu eventually later had to sign for Pirates after Bucs management won a legal argument that his services belonged to the club.

Nonetheless, the Melmoth-born star failed to really fire at the Ghost Ship that was packed with talent. He later had fairly average spells with Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows, before moving to Dinaledi at the start of 2013/14.

It was at Stars in this campaign where he bagged nine goals in all competitions, as he finally seem to play to his rich potential as a big target man and goalscorer.

His good form has seemingly caught the eye of Chiefs who are now after his services.
