Chippa are determined to make one of the biggest signings before the start of next season and they don’t come much bigger than Bidvest Wits midfielder Klate, who featured less for the Clever Boys during the past season. The former SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates man made 17 Absa Premiership appearances.
According to sources close to United, the club has placed a mouth-watering offer for the 33-year-old's services.
The Chilli Boys have already signed striker Gift Motupa from Pirates in preparation for next season.
Klate is from Port Elizabeth and Chippa are hoping to bring the player back home.
"The boss, Chippa Mpengesi, is going all out for this deal,” says the source.
"The deal looks very attractive to Daine, with Port Elizabeth being his home town.
“Let's wait and see what will happen in the next few days,” he adds.
