It’s become an open secret that Chiefs will be saying goodbye to several players as they look to rebuild some key elements of their squad for next season.

According to popular online source Unplayable, Cole Alexander and Chiefs are “definitely” set to part ways, with the likelihood that he will head back to India where he played briefly before joining Chiefs in 2021.

It has also been reported that Phathutshedzoย Nange, whoย has battled with injuries and a lack of game-time during the 2022-23 campaign, is set to make his exit from Chiefs as well.

SuperSport United are possibly interested in signing Nange for next season.

Meanwhile, there are several other players who are expected to be deemed surplus to requirements, and according to Soccer Laduma, Sabelo Radebe is one of those set for an exit.

The academy development talent is still regarded as a future star, and so this is expected to be just a loan move, perhaps primarily to ensure he gets game-time elsewhere. However, it is disappointing that the 23-year-old hasn’t been able to step up sooner in the senior team.

Meanwhile, a more permanent departure is set to Austin Dube, who has received hardly any game-time this season, and is now expected to bring his two year stay at Naturena to an end.

Recent reports have also suggested that Khama Billiat is in his final chapter with Chiefs. It could bring an end to his five-year stint at Naturena, which has largely failed to live up to its hype since his move from Mamelodi Sundowns.
