Chicken Inn chairman Lifa Ncube has revealed that Kaizer Chiefs target Teenage Hadebe will "certainly" be leaving the club in December.
Hadebe, who will turn 21 later this month, had a successful trial spell with Amakhosi last month, and it was thought that a permanent move from Zimbabwe would be finalised before the latest transfer window closed.
However, Chiefs did no further business on deadline day, and Hadebe remained with his current club, although it appears he will only be there until the end of the current year.
Ncube, speaking after the closure of the South African window, suggested that the centre back will be on his way out of the club in a few months' time, telling Bulawayo24: "The transfer window in South Africa has closed and Hadebe will be moving in December. He will certainly go."
Meanwhile, the player's agent, Gibson Mahachi, has explained to Chronicle Sport that the move was still on the cards, saying: "The deal is on the table and we're still negotiating. Chiefs haven't told us they're no longer interested in the defender and once everything is agreed on, Chiefs will have a final say on whether he can continue at Chicken Inn until the next window or not, but we will let you know."
