Kaizer Chiefs could be on the verge of losing one of their new signings in Dillan Solomons, according to word doing the rounds.
Solomons was unveiled was one six new signings by Chiefs on Monday night, alongside two of his former Swallows teammates.
His name will still be fresh in the minds of the Chiefs faithful too, as Solomons was on hand to score two penalties against Amakhosi in the final game of the DStv Premiership season. Those two goals were almost enough to secure the top flight status of Swallows but they would eventually lose out on that automatic safety, as Bernard Parker scored his final goal for the club to equalise.
That equaliser then sent Swallows to the promotion/relegation playoffs which seemed to be the reason any potential move for Solomons to Chiefs may have been delayed. The player’s agent Grant Nieuwenhuys did, however, confirm at the time that there were more clubs interested in the player than Amakhosi. Nieuwenhuys also went further to state that the player’s future will be resolved soon after the recently concluded playoffs, which Solomons helped the Dube Birds survive.
True to his word, Solomons was unveiled as a Chiefs players just over a week later, but all the excitement and joy could be short lived. This is due to a claim from Royal AM CEO Sinky Mnisi, which questions the legitimacy of the player’s deal from Swallows to the Glamour Boys.
“I think there will be a story unfolding involving Dillan Solomons, watch this space. Due processes will be followed. There are no fights, we are not in a boxing ring. All I said about Dillan Solomons is that we must allow the process to unfold” Mnisi said while Speaking to Andile Ncube on Sports Night Amplified.
In the past, Chiefs have famously been in player contract disputes with both rivals Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, over Siphelele Mthembu and Papi Zothwane respectfully. It is safe to say, they would not want to see a repeat of that unfolding.
