Chiefs lining up long list for the cull

Premiership has gathered that the much-anticipated reshuffle at Kaizer Chiefs will sweep through the spine of the team from goalkeeping all the way to up front.

The structuring will pierce from the goalkeeping department through to defence, central midfield, in attacking positions out wide and the top.

Word reaching this website is that Brandon Petersen already has a contract with the club, which explains why he has been training with Chiefs.

The future of long-serving goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is not cast in stone considering that he is amongst the top earners at the club yet not a regular and is injury-prone.

The club has been sniffing around for a central defender as it is believed there are possibilities of one of their centre-backs leaving in winter.

At left-back the club hierarchy is not convinced at all with what both Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and Yagan Sasman have offered in challenging Philani Zulu.

Chiefs' defence has not been convincing this term having conceded 21 to date, which is very much unlike them considering just how organised they usually are.

In central midfield there has been mention of Willard Katsande while Kearyn Baccus is said to be considering heading back to Australia as he seeks to play more than he has done at Chiefs.

Chiefs have had it tough getting their priority central midfield signings.

Out wide Kgaogelo Sekgota of Swallows FC is primed for a move to Naturena to spice up the wings, where there haven't been any thrills and pace, with Dumisani Zuma going disgruntled despite still having two years on his contract to run.

The attack has been a headache as well for Amakhosi with Samir Nurkovic not providing the goals the same way he did last season while fact is that Leonardo Castro is not a prolific scorer.

Bernard Parker has long forgotten how to score and might as well be sacrificed just like the goal-shy Lazarous Kambole.

Chiefs have the fifth worst attack having scored just 19 goals in the same number of league games.

Whispers suggest Bradley Grobler and Ruzaigh Gamildien could wear gold and black next season.

What is disappointing at Chiefs is that none of their established stars have stood up, amongst them Khama Biliiat and Lebogang Manyama, which is a reflection of just how much the team has struggled this term.
