Drug case freezes Josta Dladla contract talks

Posted: 21 January 2014 Time: 14:56

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Josta Dladla’s pending case of a failed drug test has frozen talks over a new contract.

Dladla was already in negotiations with the club about extending his stay at Naturena before it emerged that he tested positive for a banned substance.

The 34-year-old is currently on a deal running up to the end of June but with revelations by the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport that the veteran midfielder had used a banned stimulant called Methylhexaneamine, contract talks have now been paused pending the outcome of his case.

At this stage it is not known what punishment, if any, will be meted out on Dladla.

“Josta was also one of them [in negotiations with the club] but unfortunately he is now in a situation and we will have to wait and see what transpires with the case,” says Bobby Motaung, the Chiefs Football Manager.

In initiating negotiations, Amakhosi appeared keen to retain the versatile Dladla.

Chiefs have also chosen not to register Dladla in their CAF Champions League squad for the qualifying rounds pending the finalisation of this matter.

If he's given a punishment and chiefs doesn't renew his contract...I think it would be unfair to Josta as he is one of the most loyal players chiefs ever had

Wasemakhosini Loyal to who? Kaizer Chiefs wanted to sign Josta straight from overseas but he opted for Signdowns.

We have only registered 25 players for the champs league meaning we still have 5 spots to fill. I am sure JD will be added once this case is done, if he is not suspended that is..

I would have praised KC for stalling the contract negotiations with a junkie but the crux of the matter is that that assassin called Heberx made him so sothat what ever contract is negotiated in the future would mean this son of a Wollies thief get peanuts instead of a real pay.
