Kaizer Chiefs have been hogging the headlines for a minute now. Understandably, so. Hrere’s another huge scoop to entice you.

Pitso Mosimane and Percy Tau are linked with moves to Chiefs.

Now, they are targeting a former Pirates star. So, they are really not playing games with the new era of Amakhosi upon us.


Chiefs have set their sites on former Pirates midfielder, Ntsako Makhubela. In fact, he is one of two players they are interested in signing from PSL rivals, Richards Bay.

“Talks over the signings of Salim and Ntsako started some time ago, but they had to be halted because of Richards Bay’s precarious position on the log. But they will resume after the conclusion of the season. What I can tell you though is that both players are keen to join Chiefs,” the report read on Phakaaati.

This makes for very interesting reading given the fact that he is a former Bucs player. The renewed interest in Magoola comes amidst uncertainty over Itumeleng Khune’s future at Naturena. The Amakhosi legend is one of EIGHT players with contracts about to expire. Meaning, the next coach will determine the future of Khune and these men.


The club hinted at bringing in top talent next season. Furthermore, Percy Tau is one of the biggest names being targeted.

Moreover, Tau is keen to join Chiefs. In fact, recent reports coming out of Egypt state that he is open to the possible move if Chiefs appoint Mosimane. Therefore, Amakhosi management can kill two birds with one stone if they sign Mosimane. Some huge changes are on the cards.
