Congolese forward Andy Boyeli has joined Sekhukhune United despite being linked with a possible move to Kaizer Chiefs.

The 23-year-old scored 17 goals with Power Dynamos in Zambia and was reportedly on Amakhosi‘s radar. On Thursday, Babina Noko confirmed that Boyeli has put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

“The Congolese goal ace joins Babina Noko on a three-year contract and is expected to arrive in Johannesburg early next week to join his new teammates for pre-season having spent the break in his native country,” Sekhukhune said in a statement.

With Nasreddine Nabi set to join Kaizer Chiefs, it was believed that Boyeli could be his first signing but Sekhukhune has snatched the Congolese. According to FARPost, Dynamos CEO Gibson Chaloba said the club had not received any enquiry from Chiefs or Pirates.

“I can categorically state that I’ve never received any enquiry from Kaizer Chiefs regarding Andy Boyeli,” Chaloba told the publication.

Sekhukhune signs Boyeli, Kaizer Chiefs miss out?

Before the Sekhukhune deal was finalised, Chaloba claimed no PSL clubs had shown major interest in the striker

“At the moment, there’s nothing concrete [from the other clubs that have shown interest],” he said. 

“He’s a player we would sell if there’s a proper suitor. If someone has a good offer, we’d consider it. We’ve read rumours. We’ve seen on social media [that our player is linked to Chiefs and Pirates], but basically, there’s nothing. We’re ready to sit and discuss if there’s any suitors.”

Boyeli to play in the PSL after signing for Sekhukhune United

With Sekhukhune United confirming the signature of Boyeli, Kaizer Chiefs are on the market to find a top striker. Last season, the Soweto giants bought two strikers but both failed to deliver. Ranga Chivaviro and Jasond Gonzalez scored four goals in between them last season.
