Amakhosi’s first-choice left-back alternatives are not available. Fawaaz Basadien was a primary target but the Stellies man has recently signed a new deal with the Winelands club. Meanwhile, Mohamed Hussein has more enticing offers on his plate.

“Tanzanian Mohamed Hussein has offers from Europe and his club Simba SC prefers Europe to Chiefs. Basadien of Stellenbosch FC had signed a new contract with the club which means he won’t come cheap considering teams like Mamelodi Sundowns are also interested in him,” he added.

Amakhosi snap up prolific youth prospect

Chiefs have signed 18-year-old Tika Taka Sports Academy star Mamogelo Malefo. The club’s newest youth recruit bagged 16 goals and supplied 18 assists in 18 games last season. The 18-year-old will join the club’s U19 structures and go from there. The step up to senior football is a steep one but this is a name we’ll be watching in the months and years to come.

Tika Taka released the following statement:

“We are happy to announce that Kamogelo Malefo has officially joined the Kaizer Chiefs Under 19 Development. Kamogelo showcased his exceptional skills and talent during the assessment process, standing out as a true standout among his peers. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the management team at Kaizer Chiefs for recognising Stumbo’s potential and providing him with this remarkable chance to shine on the field. Your belief in his abilities means the world to us!”
