At Kaizer Chiefs, well, at any club in the world, transfer deals are a balance of who goes and who comes in. Additionally, there is a limit of three foreign players at each club in our PSL

Amakhosi’s three foreign spots are likely to become vacant.

More often than not, a player’s departure from a club offers enough evidence way before the final exit takes place in the transfer window.

For three foreign Kaizer Chiefs players, this is unfortunately the case, unless things take a sudden swing… and that really happens in football.

Here are the three foreign Glamour Boys who might leave and therefore allow the club to sign three new foreign players next season.

1. Lazarous Kambole

The 25-year-old Zambian forward has only made two appearances this season despite being fully fit. He is most certainly expected to bid his farewell when the season ends.

2. Leonardo Castro 

The Colombian striker’s quality is known. Sadly the 31-year-old has been bitterly unlucky with injuries, and when he has been fit, he has not displayed the Castro Kaizer Chiefs fans watched at Mamelodi Sundowns.

3. Daniel Akpeyi

The 35-year-old goalkeeper has hardly put a foot wrong whenever Amakhosi called on him to deliver his job. The Soweto giants just happen to have enough younger goalkeepers who are as equally reliable.

At this moment, Akpeyi is below the pecking order behind Brandon Peterson and Bruce Bvuma, while Itumeleng Khune is a club icon. The 19-year-old Karabo Molefe is also moving nearer the first team.

Should all three foreign spots become vacant, it remains a big mystery who Amakhosi will be signing. For now, there is no foreign player among the club’s reported transfer targets so far.
