As far as the newest transfer announcements, the Glamour Boys confirmed the departure of Sibusiso Mabiliso last week.

The 23-year-old left-back had joined from AmaZulu in 2020 before failing to impress both Stuart Baxter and Arthur Zwane.

“Kaizer Chiefs and defender Sbusiso Mabiliso have parted ways after his contract was terminated by mutual consent,” the club said in the official statement.

“The Rustenburg-born left-back arrived at Club in July 2021 and played six matches for Amakhosi last season.

“The 23-year-old former youth international has been given his clearance and is now free to join a Club of his choice.

“We thank Sbu for his contribution and wish him well for the future,” the note concluded.

Meanwhile, Saturday’s game against the Natal Rich Boyz will kickoff at 20:00.
