Kaizer Chiefs are expected to make some big changes on and off the field at the end of the season.

Chiefs will be hoping to appoint a new coaching staff that can change the club’s fortunes going forward.

That change of fortunes will require some freedom for the new coaching staff to dip into the market. This being in an effort to find some quality players that can come into the club and take the Chiefs brand back to where it belongs. It is no secret that Amakhosi have had a large turnover of players over the last two pre-season transfer windows. Neither have been a success, unfortunately. 

Ahead of the 2022/23 season, Chiefs signed Ashley du Preez, Zitha Kwinika, George Matlou, Kamohelo Mahlatsi, Yusuf Maart, Siyethemba Sithebe and Dillan Solomons. Then as the season progressed they added Edmilson Dove, Caleb Bimenyimana and Christian Saile. Out of those 10 players, two have been released by the club already, while at least five have been linked with an exit.

Chiefs were interested in Dortley last season

At the start of the current season, Chiefs revamped their playing squad, making nine signings. These included Thathoyaone Dithlokwe, Given Msimango, Mduduzi Mdantsane, Pule Mmodi, Ranga Chivaviro, Edson Castillo and Potsane. Then, with the season already under way, Chiefs added Jasond Gonzales and Sibongiseni Mthethwa. In October, they added a 10th signing, the late centre back Luke Fleurs. The former SA U23 star joined Amakhosi on a red transfer from SuperSport United

One reported transfer target they didn’t sign is Cape Town Spurs left-back Rushwin Dortley. It was previously reported that the player was prioritising a move abroad and not to Chiefs. But now. According to iDiski Times R6 million could be enough to take him to Naturena.

R6 million price tag

“Dortley was the subject of interest from Danish Superliga side FC Nordsjaelland and Kaizer Chiefs before winning promotion with Spurs last season. Dortley may have to be sold in order to balance the books in the Motsepe Foundation Championship with a price tag set at R6 million” wrote the publication.

Seems like a good price for a young and versatile defender. Will Chiefs go back in for Dortley?
