Cape Town Spurs will be in a relegation scrap this season and they want to sign Kaizer Chiefs star Sabelo Radebe to help in their bid for survival.

ICYMI: Big changes coming to Naturena?

Spurs want Kaizer Chiefs star Radebe

Spurs, now under the tutelage of Ernst Middendorp, have already made several loan additions to their squad. That makes more loan signings in January a complicated issue, but they’re ready to add another in the shape of Sabelo Radebe. According to SoccerLaduma, Richards Bay have also enquired about the 23-year-old Amakhosi star.

“For now they’re talking about a possible loan move. It’s Cape Town Spurs who have enquired about Radebe as they want to strengthen their squad at the halfway mark of the campaign.”

“He has a long contract with Chiefs and is still young so I don’t think they would want to sell him now. It will depend on the talks whether he goes out on loan or stays to fight for his place,” the source added.

Managerial search ongoing at Naturena

The club’s recent scattergun approach to hiring managers hasn’t worked.

“The management is currently still negotiating with some candidates; they are looking to appoint a quality coach who will be with the team for five years at least so that he can have ample time to develop the current team. They are looking outside the country,” the source stated on KickOff.

Amakhosi’s top brass want to hire a foreign manager to take the project forward for half a decade or more. That, after local coaches failed to add any silverware to the club’s trophy cabinet since 2015.
