Chiefs update on player movements


Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that two of their players are set to join first division newcomers Moroka Swallows for the upcoming season.

Midfielder Ayanda Rorwana and striker Itumeleng Shopane are set to join the reincarnated Dube Birds on their maiden flight in this season's GladAfrica Championship.

Both stars graduated from Chiefs' youth development ranks but have not been included in the first team plans under Ernst Middendorp, while they have also surpassed their time with Arthur Zwane's MultiChoice Diski Challenge team.

In an effort to afford them both game-time and further development at a higher level, the duo will be hoping to raise their profile with Swallows, who have yet to have their name change from Maccabi FC approved by the PSL.

Rorwana, 21, turned out for the MDC team last year while Shopane, 22, was previously on loan in the First Division at Cape Town All Stars, prior to their status being sold to Nedbank Cup champions TS Galaxy.
