Chiefs target still waiting to be released


The new owners of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila are believed to be refusing to give Bidvest Wits winger Phathutshedzo Nange his clearance.

Nange, who made 32 appearances in all comptitions last season under Gavin Hunt and scored four goals, is believed to be pushing for a move to Kaizer Chiefs.

"The player is still fighting for his clearance. Eish, it's bad. TTM wants the player to play for them next season," a source close to the player tells

"But TTM are just wasting their time on this because they won't win. If this thing goes to the DRC they won't win it. With Bidvest Wits selling the club, that is change of conditions already.

"Remember he signed with Wits, not with them. So he's got a right to ask to be released. They won't win it. He will get his clearance. They must allow him to leave."

TTM officials could not be reached to explain the delay in releasing the 28-year-old.

Amakhosi are understood to be considering signing Nange if they are successful in their appeal against a two-window FIFA transfer ban.

Nange's former teammate Sifiso Hlanti has already started training with Hunt at The Village as he awaits a resolution on his future.
