Defenders added to Gavin Hunt's wishlist

Premiership

KickOff.com can confirm that Taariq Fielies and Buhle Mkhwanazi have joined the list of players on Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt's most-wanted list.

Amakhosi are set to go undergo a major overhaul at the end of the season with more than 10 players expected to be handed their clearances.

The Phefeni Glamour Boys have already released Siphelele Ntshangase while the future of the likes of Lebogang Manyama, Bernard Parker and Willard Katsande remain uncertain.

According to a source close to Chiefs, the club is preparing to make an offer to Cape Town City for the services of their trusted servant Fielies.

The Cape Town-born defender's contract with the Citizens is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 season after he signed a five-year contract club in 2018.

"Gavin Hunt is a big fan of Taariq Fielies. Chiefs are interested. The only challenge they might have is John Comitis' asking fee," the source tells KickOff.com.

"Buhle Mkhwanazi is still trying to sort out his issues with TTM and could join Chiefs next season even though there is overseas interest."

Amakhosi are set to bring in Sifiso Hlanti and Phathutshedzo Nange from Swallows FC and Stellenbosch FC respectively next season.

Nange could not celebrate his goal when Stellies played to a 2-2 draw in the DStv Premiership match against Chiefs at FNB stadium on Tuesday.

Mkhwanazi, Hlanti and Nange all played under Hunt at Bidvest Wits before the club was sold last season.
