Kaizer Chiefs have ‘missed out’ on top Congolese striker Andy Boyeli who has since signed for Sekhukhune United.

Boyeli was recently linked with a switch to the PSL from Zambian outfit Power Dynamo with Amakhosi reported to be his possible destination.

However, the reports proved to be untrue as the 23-year-old from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) had his sights set on Sekhukhune United.

Now, Babina Noko have confirmed in a statement that Boyeli now belongs to them after singing a three-year deal with them.

According to the statement, Boyeli will arrive in Johannesburg some time next week to join his Sekhukhune teammates for pre-season.

Boyeli comes in highly rated after what was a successful stint with Power Dynamos over the last two seasons.

He was named Footballer of the Year for the 2022-23 season in the Zambian Premier League, and he leaves the club with 18 goals in 23 games for Dynamos.

Sekhukhune United hierarchy is trying hard to assemble a competitive squad ahead of their return to continental football next season.

Having finished fourth on the DStv Premiership log, Babina Noko will again take part in the CAF Confederation Cup which will be for a second season running.


“The club wishes to thank the Board of Directors at Dynamos for the professional manner in which the negotiations for the transfer of Boyeli were handled,” reads the statement as per SABC Sport.

“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,” his new club added further details. 


Meanwhile, Sekhukhune United have officially parted ways with Lehlohonolo Seema just a few weeks after placing him on special leave.

Seema had a fallout with the club’s bosses over his contract which was initially believed to be a three-year deal only to later be discovered as a one-year deal.

Now, the fallout has led to the Sekhukhune United management to not renew the coach’s contract beyond 30 June.

A number of coaches have already been linked to the coaching post, including Gavin Hunt who has since turned them down.

Recent reports have also suggested that Sekhukhune are eyeing Jwaneng Galaxy mentor Morena Ramoreboli who won a league and a Cup double last season.

However, at this stage, Ramoreboli said talks over his future at Jwaneng Galaxy are ongoing between his agent and the club, as per FAPost.
