Former Mamelodi Sundowns star joining Kaizer Chiefs? – latest 

Former Mamelodi Sundowns star Keletso Makgalwa was once a promising striker under Pitso Mosimane. But has since been making waves in the Motsepe Foundation Championship with Upington City. After his release from Sundowns, Makgalwa joined Upington in October last year. He subsequently became a standout player, scoring 11 goals and contributing seven assists. His performance helped them come close to a promotion play-off spot, missing out by just three points.

Kaizer Chiefs’ Interest: Fact or Fiction?

Rumours have been swirling since January that Kaizer Chiefs have been keeping a close eye on Former Mamelodi Sundowns star Makgalwa’s progress. Some reports even suggested that an agreement had been reached for his transfer at the end of the season. However, Makgalwa’s agent, Ntobatsi Masegela, has set the record straight.

“How can I allow Keletso to go? No one even knows who’s gonna coach the club next season. You need to understand who is going to coach the club before you let the player go,” Masegela told KickOff

“There’s nothing agreed with Chiefs. I’ve never spoken to Chiefs about this, and neither has Upington. It’s just fake rumours.”

Kaizer Chiefs’ Coaching Conundrum

The search for a new head coach at Kaizer Chiefs adds another layer of complexity. Interim boss Cavin Johnson will step down at the end of the season. Several names have been linked to the position, including Pitso Mosimane, Alexandre Santos, and Sead Ramovic. This uncertainty makes any potential player transfers speculative at best.

Securing talent: Reeve Frosler’s contract extension

In other news, Kaizer Chiefs are making moves to secure their squad’s stability. Right-back Reeve Frosler is set to extend his contract by three years. Which would keep him at the club until June 2028. This decision underscores Chiefs’ commitment to maintaining a solid defensive lineup.

“The new deal is expected to start at the end of next season. They wanted to secure Frosler’s future early because he would soon become a free agent,” a source revealed. 

“With Frosler’s contract extending until June 2028 and Dillon Solomons’ until June 2026, Chiefs are ensuring they have a robust defence while gradually introducing young talent.”

Reeve Frosler: A Pillar in Defense

Frosler, who joined Chiefs in July 2019, has been a crucial part of their defence. Making 21 league appearances this season and providing one assist. His extended contract highlights Chiefs’ strategy to build a formidable defensive unit for the future.

While Keletso Makgalwa’s future remains uncertain amid rumours and speculation continue. Kaizer Chiefs are clearly focused on securing key players like Reeve Frosler to strengthen their squad. As the coaching situation at Chiefs unfolds, it will be interesting to see how their strategic plans evolve.
