Kaizer Chiefs have several options and could bring in one of Black Leopards' players as part of a proposed loan deal for out-of-favour midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase.
After a good start at the beginning of his Amakhosi journey, Ntshangase has found game-time hard to come by in recent times as German coach Ernst Middendorp continues to overlook him.
The last game the 26-year-old took part in was the Macufe Cup challenge against Bloemfontein Celtic where he failed to impress.
With the trio of Leopards owner David Thidiela, manager Chief Thidiela and head coach Luc Eymael all failing to deny to KickOff.com that there is a possibility of their ex-player returning to the club next month, we look at the players who are believed to be not happy at Lidoda Duvha who might be included in a potential Ntshangase deal.
Coincidentally, all these players have been strongly linked with a move to Naturena in recent times.
The 30-year-old has featured only five times for the Venda-based side so far this season, scored only one goal and provided no assists.
Popularly known as 'Stitch', Tshepe can play both as a midfielder and left-winger. Earlier this year Chiefs enquired about the Leopards jersey number 10.
News coming from the Leopards camp says 'Black Jesus' is refusing to extend his contract with the club as he is holding out for a move to either Chiefs or Orlando Pirates.
His contract with Leopards is believed to be expiring in June 2020. If that is the case, the 29-year-old will be within his rights to sign a pre-contract elsewhere next month.
He has so far played only 11 games for Leopards.
Asked recently by this website to confirm if the striker was really refusing to sign a new contract with the club, Chief Thidiela replied, "Speak to him, Speak to Mhlongo."
It was reported that Chiefs approached the striker and his agent during pre-season and it is also well documented that Leopards are willing to let the 2018/19 Absa Premiership Golden Boot winner leave the club if the price is right.
Cash plus Ntshangase for a six-month loan might not be a bad deal after all.
It is believed the Zambian's mind is no longer at Leopards after he failed to land a transfer away at the beginning of the season. In the 11 games he has played so far he has scored two goals.
Seen as a strong candidate to replace the outgoing Joseph Molangoane at the Soweto giants, the 26-year-old recently had a public fallout with Leopards coach Eymael and has asked the club to loan him out in January.
"I can't play and I don't know why. The first game I played and had an assist, we won the match. The next game I didn't play, and the coach didn't explain his reasons for dropping me. I told him that I want a loan move and he said I have a bad attitude," he was quoted as saying by Daily Sun.
"I looked at him straight in the eyes and said 'it's clear you don't like me'. I want to leave with all my heart. I will fight for a loan move to happen."
