KickOff.com has established that Kaizer Chiefs have joined Orlando Pirates and made enquiries for Free State Stars forward Ayanda Nkosi.
Nkosi was unwanted at Maritzburg United at the beginning of last season but since arriving at Ea Lla Koto has shown tremendous potential in that he can lead the attack with his bustling approach to the game.
The 23-year-old’s talents were witnessed when he struck the winner against Orlando Pirates in a league match in February.
Confirmation has reached this website that Nkosi’s agent has already been in touch with the two Soweto giants, who have been referred to his club.
The Stars management have met with the player, who has indicated that his first priority would to be remain in Bethlehem for another season and that he would prefer a move to Chiefs if a move were sanctioned to any of the interested clubs.
With Chiefs only having Camaldine Abraw as an out-and-out striker option still in their plans for next season, Nkosi feels his chances of playing would be better at Naturena.
The Secunda-born striker is also known to have grown up supporting Amakhosi and has for long made it known that his dream is to eventually play for the Glamour Boys, who are finding it difficult to find striking options inside South African borders.
Nkosi has also worked with coach Steve Komphela during his time at Maritzburg.
However, at this moment in time the ball is in Stars’ court with a chance that they could work out a deal that includes the loan of some of Chiefs’ transfer-listed players.
