4 Chiefs, Bucs players who need to leave


With almost a month left before the transfer window re-opens, a few players in the PSL are expected to make some moves either on loan or on a permanent basis.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has already spelt out that his team will sign one or two players in the transfer window in a bid to reinforce his team for both the CAF Champions League and domestic football.

Orlando Pirates have also invited Ivorian former Cape Town City defender Kouassi Kouadja for trials in a bid to fortify their defence this season.

Kaizer Chiefs, meanwhile, are flying high and have no dire need to strengthen any particular positions, with the likes of James Kotei still waiting for his chance.

KickOff.com takes a look at some of the players who are likely to move out in January due to a lack of game time at Pirates and Chiefs.

Scroll through the photos above to see their possible destinations

Siphelele Ntshangase (Kaizer Chiefs)

The KwaZulu-Natal-born midfielder has found it tough going under coach Ernst Middendorp despite arriving at Naturena with high hopes after great stints with Black Leopards and Baroka.

Under the new system employed by Middendorp this season, it is really difficult to pick up where 'Stash' could fit in at Amakhosi with the German coach operating without a natural number 10.

This is the position Ntshangase enjoyed at Leopards, which also saw him win a few Bafana Bafana caps.

Austin Muwowo (Orlando Pirates)

The Zambia international arrived at Pirates highly rated following his exploits in Lusaka where he won the Footballer of the Year award and was also joint-top scorer in the league.

Muwowo has made only one appearance in Buccaneers colours this season.

Joseph Molangoane (Kaizer Chiefs)

Already rumours are going around that Molangoane could retire from football due to a long-term injury.

The former Pirates and Chippa United winger's contract with Amakhosi is set to expire in June and chances are high that it will not be renewed.

Bongani Sam (Orlando Pirates)

Sam's move to Pirates after a brilliant season in both attacking and defending with Bloemfontein Celtic came as no surprise but was skeptical owing to the number of left-backs already at the club.

With Innocent Maela an automatic start, coach Rhulani Mokwena has preferred Paseka Mako in his absence, and that has made it difficult for the Stars of Africa Academy product to make it even to the bench.
