Chiefs making space for newcomers

Kaizer Chiefs are set to part ways with quite a few players after another disappointing campaign.
Keagan Buchanan, Edmore Chirambadare, Khotso Malope and Tsepo Masilela are said to be among those heading out to make way for new players who will be coming to the club during the transfer window.
Buchanan, who has not seen regular game-time since leaving Bloemfontein Celtic, is looking for a fresh start. Maritzburg United were interested in the player in the last transfer window, while Cape Town City could look to bring in the former junior international to join the likes of Thabo Nodada and Mpho Matsi in their midfield.
KickOff.com has been informed that Masilela, who had been given a one-year contract before the start of the past season, is heading out next month. A move to the USA is on the cards, while there are other undisclosed PSL clubs interested in the player.
Chirambadare, meanwhile, made just five appearances in his second season with the club, as he fell out of favour. The Zimbabwean joined Amakhosi with his compatriot Michelle Katsvairo, who parted ways with the Soweto giants after an unsuccessful spell.
Amakhosi have been linked with former Orlando Pirates midfielder Andile Jali, as well as Ajax Cape Town duo Jody February and Mosa Lebusa.
The club will also make a decision on whether they keep technical adviser Rob Hutting, who was appointed in January to work closely with former coach Steve Komphela. Hutting had signed a short-term deal with the club and will now know if he has done enough to hold onto his job.
