And they have now followed up with the confirmation that three players who featured prominently in the reserve team in recent seasons have been released.
"Former Kaizer Chiefs development players Ayanda Rorwana, Sizwe Twala and Itumeleng Shopane have been released and cleared to join teams of their choice. We wish them well," the club statement read.
With the players aged between 23 and 24, their exits will allow a new crop of emerging talent from the academy to be promoted to the DStv Diski Challenge squad.
