Chicken Inn defender Teenage Hadebe impresses on Kaizer Chiefs trial

KickOff.com have been informed that Zimbabwean defender Teenage Hadebe impressed on his trial at Naturena, with Kaizer Chiefs now engaging his club Chicken Inn regarding a possible transfer.
Hadebe was on the evening flight back home yesterday faced with the likelihood of ending the month as a Chiefs player after showing that he is worthy of being signed during the week that he spent with Amakhosi.
If all goes according to plan regarding talks between the two clubs then Hadebe could be back as soon as next week with Steve Komphela having seen glimpses of what he likes in a central defender in the towering Hadebe.
KickOff.com has been told that the ‘picture’ will get clearer this week but all parties involved already have a brief and all that is needed for them to come to is an agreement.
Hadebe is a left-footed central defender who uses his height to great effect on set-pieces and with first choice centre-back Erick Mathoho currently injured, Chiefs’ options in that position have been trimmed down to Daniel Cardoso, Lorenzo Gordinho, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and the transfer-listed Siyanda Xulu.
Chiefs have so far registered three foreign players in Lewis Macha, Mitchell Katsvairo and Edmore Chirambadare and still have two spaces open in their quota of five, but one is reserved for injured Togolese forward Camaldine Abraw.
The 20-year-old Hadebe appears likely to be called up for his country's dead rubber 2017 AFCON qualifier against Guinea over the first weekend of September.
The Warriors have already qualified for the finals to be played in Gabon next year after finishing top of Group L with a game to spare.
