Kaizer Chiefs are finding themselves in a pack of races. Chippa United have made a big move on a target.


Not too long ago, it was believed that Amakhosi completed an agreement with Upington City to sign Makgalwa after a hot season in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

According to new reports, Chippa have tabled an offer to sign the 27-year-old Kaizer Chiefs target.

“Makgalwa is wanted by several teams after the impressive season with Upington City in the NFD,” a source told FARPost.

“Chippa United have tabled an offer for Makgalwa to show their intent to bring him on board. But remember, Sekhukhune United is also after him.

“I mean, he could have ended up at Sekhukhune in January, but Upington City was not willing to sell. So don’t be surprised if Makgalwa end up signing with Sekhukhune United,” the source concluded.


Bless Njabulo Ngcobo. The Kaizer Chiefs star visited his local school to sponsor school shoes and sanitary pads.

Training for the 2024/25 season will only start in July. Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs’ 30-year-old defender Ngcobo is using his free time to give back to his community. The Folweni-born star donated school shoes and sanitary pads to the pupils at Mthwalume in Ugu District Municipality in the KwaZulu-Natal province. – CHECK OUT THE IMAGES HERE.


Staying with Ngcobo, it is the second week of June and the player’s deal is ending on the 30th. His agent, Sboniso Ngubane, has sent out a second warning to Kaizer Chiefs. Ngubane previously indicated that Amakhosi’s delay have forced him to talk to AmaZulu.

“Kaizer Chiefs is a professional club, they communicate about their intentions. Unfortunately, they have not said anything about Njabulo Ngcobo,” Ngubane previously told SABC Sport. “We are in talks with different clubs in the DStv Premiership, including AmaZulu FC,” he added.

Meanwhile, the agent has given a new update: Sekhukhune United are keen to sign Ngcobo after his deal with Kaizer Chiefs expires.

“When SABC Sport contacted his manager Sboniso Ngubane on Sunday, he did confirm talks with Sekhukhune United, but refused to give away much regarding the player’s next move,” the report said.

“”We are still negotiating with them,” Ngubane told the public broadcaster’s sports desk,” the report added. “The final decision is expected to be announced before the end of June, with Chiefs also set to make pronouncements regarding changes to their squad, including a new coach.”
