A former Kaizer Chiefs star maybe getting ready to return to topflight football next season, according to the latest reports. 

Dumisani Zuma has been without a club since January, after he was part of the contingent Moroka Swallows released.

The bulk of the Swallows squad went on strike in December, an act that has since cost them their jobs. This strike saw the Swallows players withdraw from their last two games of 2023, which proved costly to the club. The PSL ended up fining the Dube Birds a cool R1 million for failing to honour those fixtures. They did, however, receive the leniency of having R600 000 of it suspended. With the club already cash-strapped, that was a sanction they could ill afford. They then also decided to take action on the players who had decided against playing, effectively firing them. Furthermore, the league granted three points to both of their opponents, Mamelodi Sundowns and Golden Arrows.

The players had decided to boycott those two games, as they had not been paid their salaries. After a process of internal disciplinary hearings, a list of 22 players who had been dismissed by Swallows started making the rounds. The list featured some notable names such as Daniel Akpeyi, Bongani Sam, Ntsako Makhubela and Zuma. Akpeyi returned, while Makhubela signed for Richards Bay FC.

Now according to KickOff.com Zuma could also soon get a solution on his future, through PSL new boys Magesi FC

“Zuma is coming back next season. He will be playing in the PSL again. Magesi are interested and want to sign him for next season,” said a source to the same publication. 

Should these news prove to be true, this would represent yet another opportunity for Zuma, who has struggled since Chiefs. Should Magesi take the risk on him?
