Kaizer Chiefs prospect Samkelo Zwane is all set to ask for a loan move next season.

Zwane is believed to be unhappy with the game time he is getting at Naturena.

The club are seemingly convinced of Zwane’s talents. However, they have yet to make him a permanent fixture in the first team.

Zwane’s representatives have pumped the brakes on transfer speculation.

The player’s agent Mike Makaab explained to iDiski Times: “I think it would be premature to discuss anything of this nature, I would say that one would only look at [potential loan move] at the end of this season.

“Obviously, we would, as we do with all football clubs, sit with the football club and discuss each and every player we represent, get feedback from the club, and if the club believes it’s worthwhile and better for the player’s development.

“For him [Zwane] or any player, let’s forget about Samkelo but any player in general, for a player to go out on loan and if we believe and support the narrative, we’ll get behind doing it but making sure the loan is one where we believe the player has got an opportunity for game time and [good] minutes.”

Makaab appears keen to keep Kaizer Chiefs onside with his charge.

Moulded in the image of Paul Scholes

In an interview, Zwane’s father Eugene revealed that he has long worked with his son to ensure that he has grown up steeped in a passing game.

Zwane made a big splash last season. Now though, he is a bit lost in the shuffle. His agent has urged patience but will Zwane force somehting?

If it comes to fruition, it will be the result of years of work and dedication.

“I started teaching him how to pass from a distance when he was young,” Eugene told Isolezwe.

“I wanted him to reach the level of Paul Scholes.

He also said: “I still encourage him that if there is an opportunity to display this skill, he should use it.

“But most of the time he plays simple passes. He will learn the rest as the years go by and he gets experience.”

The 22-year-old midfielder made 15 appearances in all competitions after being promoted from the Amakhosi reserve squad the previous season.

Zwane has played in just one MTN8 match this season and has only made six appearances in the DStv Premiership.

Although Cavin Johnson is obviously not interested in the gifted teenage striker, SuperSport United are reportedly intrigued by him.
