Chilli Boys close in on Cosmos captain

Transfer News

Chippa last night confirmed the signing of fellow midfielder Mxolisi Macuphu from Cosmos, adding to the recent capture of playmaker Thabo Rakhale from Orlando Pirates.

Mntambo's contract with Ezenkosi is set to expire in June.

However the Chilli Boys - who traded defenders Diamond Thopola and Phetso Maphanga for Rakhale - are keen to secure his services in the January transfer window, according to a source.

"Chippa has made a formal offer to Jomo Cosmos," says the source.

"If things goes well the deal could go through this week."
