Inside info on reported Chiefs target


Kaizer Chiefs have not approached SuperSport United for the services of highly-rated defender Luke Fleurs.

Fleurs, 21, is widely considered as one of the brightest defensive prospects in South African football and has become a mainstay in the SuperSport defence this season.

The South Africa youth international has earned plaudits for his robust style of play and technical ability to feature as a ball-playing defender under head coach Kaitano Tembo and has been tipped to become a future Bafana Bafana regular.

It's been reported in local media that Fleurs and his teammate Sipho Mbule have been identified as primary targets for Amakhosi boss Gavin Hunt next season.

See where Fleurs ranked amongst the youngest players in the PSL last season can confirm that Amakhosi have yet to make official contact with Matsatsansa with sources close to the player confirming he's unaware of any interest from the Soweto giants.

"Luke isn't aware of any interest at the moment, he's also just focused on improving with SuperSport and targeting a place in the Olympics squad," the source explained.

The towering defender has featured 31 times for the Tshwane giants in all competitions, scoring two goals since his move from Ubuntu in July 2018.
