Kaizer Chiefs attacker is wanted by Europe’s elite as he contemplates this decision during the off-season, according to iDiski Times. As the 2024/25 season looms, Chiefs’ star Ashley Du Preez is once again the subject of European interest. With impressive performances under his belt, Du Preez is at a pivotal point in his career while his current club navigates through potential coaching changes and strategic decisions. Meanwhile, Stellenbosch FC and TS Galaxy are making significant moves to reshape their squads and coaching staff. Aiming for success in the upcoming season.

Chiefs forward Ashley Du Preez is once again turning heads in Europe as the 2024/25 season approaches. Last season, Romanian club FCSB attempted to lure Du Preez, along with Siyabonga Ngezana and Reeve Frosler. But Chiefs only let Ngezana go, who then clinched the Romanian Superliga title in his debut season. Now, Portugal is showing serious interest in Du Preez. With clubs ready to offer double the R10 million Chiefs paid to secure him from Stellenbosch FC in July 2022.

Du Preez’s Performance and Chiefs’ Dilemma

Despite Kaizer Chiefs’ struggles since the attacker’s arrival, the former Stellenbosch FC star has delivered commendable performances. With 15 goals and seven assists in 69 games, primarily playing as a winger or inside forward, he remains a crucial asset. As Chiefs plan a squad overhaul with a new coach. There’s a compelling case to offer Du Preez an improved contract and build the team around his talents.

Stellenbosch FC’s Transfer Market Moves

In the Winelands, Stellenbosch FC is actively seeking new talent as they brace for their debut in African competitions next season. The club is preparing for the imminent departure of Jayden Adams to Mamelodi Sundowns. With ongoing talks between the clubs taking place. Additionally, Nhalala Mgaga is set to leave, prompting Stellenbosch to scout for a new number eight and a centre-back to bolster their first-team depth. They also aim to find a winger to replace Kgaogelo Sekgota. And also potentially a new number nine if Iqraam Rayners heads to the Saudi Pro League.

TS Galaxy’s Coaching Transition

At the Rockets, TS Galaxy is restructuring their coaching staff. Veterans Bernard Parker and Vuyo Mere are poised to join the DStv Diski Challenge coaching team. Both players, after gaining coaching insights from Sead Ramovic and his technical team while still playing, are ready to retire and transition into coaching roles. Current head coach Ashley Makhanya will step up as Head of Development. Which will see him oversee the revamped coaching staff. This strategic shift aims to replicate the success of the DDC, which has seen young talents like Aphelele Teto and others thrive in the first team.
