MAYELE SIGNS FOR KAIZER CHIEFS – REPORTS

If the prominent Ghanaian journalist Nuhu Adams can be believed, Amakhosi have signed Mayele on a three-year deal.

“South African giants @KaizerChiefs have completed the signing of @yangasc1935 striker Fiston Kalala Mayele (28) on a three-year contract, announcement soon,” Adams reported.

“Mayele was 2nd highest scorer in the Tanzania Premier League this season with 16 goals,” the report added.

NEED FOR A STRIKER

Whether the Glamour Boys have indeed signed Mayele or not, replacements are due after the departures of Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro.

The Soweto giants have so far signed Ashley Du Preez from Stellenbosch FC, a player that is not essentially a target man but a false nine or 10.

UPDATE!

Amakhosi’s Director of Football Kaizer Motaung Jnr and Yanga have just dismissed the report of signing Mayele as false!
