Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United are likely to be joined by AmaZulu FC in their pursuit of Sibusiso Vilakazi from Mamelodi Sundowns,” Soccer Laduma reported in their latest issue.

As reported by the Siya crew in December, Chiefs had made informal enquiries into the Sundowns attacker’s availability, with the player’s future at Chloorkop increasingly in doubt due to his regular lack of game time,” the outlet added.

“SuperSport subsequently entered into the mix, with sources indicating last month that the club was considering bringing him on board.

“The latest news reaching the Siya crew is that AmaZulu are admirers of the 32-year-old, and according to sources, Vilakazi has been identified as a possible replacement for Siyethemba Sithebe, who will be leaving the Durban-based club to join Chiefs at the end of the season after signing a pre-contract with them,” the report added.

The report concluded by confirming a major obstacle. The Meadowlands-born player is still contracted to Sundowns until 2024. This means that negotiations for a transfer fee will need to be agreed on and paid.
