Kaizer Chiefs fan favourite Ashley du Preez is on the comeback trail but it’s still a while until we see him on the pitch for the Glamour Boys again.

REVEALED: Is this the Amakhosi transfer shortlist for January


Chiefs told their fans that Ashley Du Preez will only return to full training at the end of next month.

“According to my medical report, he will return at the end of December,” the report added.

“There are good signs; Ashley is out on the pitch and running a little bit. According to the medical report that I have, he will return at the end of December,”

Realistically speaking, we might only see him in the black & gold again in February. Chiefs face Polokwane on December 9th, Richards Bay on the 23rd and then Sekhukhune on the 30th. Their next match after that is on February 13th against TS Galaxy.

Meanwhile, another Chiefs player’s future is far from certain. Edmilson Dove has become a valuable part of the furniture at Naturena with his versatility and experience both invaluable assets. The 29-year-old can play left-back and centre-back and is now a regular for Mozambique too, but his Chiefs contract expires in June 2024. As of January, he’ll be allowed to talk to new suitors with a view to signing a pre-contract deal. It’s a strange position for him to be in, given his seniority at the club. Then again, young prospect Aden McCarthy is a left-sided central defender and Amakhosi has also recently signed the equally versatile 23-year-old Luke Fleurs.
