Chiefs' transfer business misses and hits to date


Kaizer Chiefs could have missed out on some of their transfer targets, but they remain in the market with at least one of their signings due to arrive during this transfer window. 

Chiefs have in recent times struggled to muscle their way towards pinning down their top targets which have left them chasing alternatives of what they initially wanted.

They have already failed to land Bongokuhle Hlongwane, who has settled for Minnesota United in the MLS.

Chiefs’ football manager Bobby Motaung did make calls in an attempt to land Hlongwane while he was on the books of Maritzburg United but came out with nothing.

Maritzburg had long indicated their desire to cash in on the rising Bafana Bafana star and just would have taken any payment from whichever club the player settled for.

Chiefs were again tapping Teboho Mokoena with the intention of bringing him to Naturena from SuperSport United.

With SuperSport United selling for financial reasons, Mokoena was keen on a move to Chiefs provided they reached an agreement with his club.

Chiefs couldn’t compete with the offers placed on the table for Mokoena and subsequently pulled out.

The Bafana Bafana midfielder has since agreed to terms with Sundowns despite other interests from Belgian club Anderlecht.

Sundowns have also muscled their way towards enticing Chiefs’ target Abubeker Nasir Ahmed to Chloorkop for an assessment.

Chiefs have long had Nasir sitting on their table with his Ethiopian club having made known their selling price, which is in single figures in the million rands evaluation.

However, with that said, AmaKhosi appear certain to land Sipho Mbule from SuperSport United.

The Stuart Baxter-coached club is also targeting Victor Letsoalo but will have to balance their books by not keeping either Leonardo Castro or Samir Nurkovic next season.

Chiefs already have the signature of Siyethemba Sithebe in the bank after snapping him up on a free with his contract at AmaZulu up in June.
