Left-sided players aren’t exactly a dime a dozen and Sifiso Hlanti is one of the best around.
He hasn’t found his best form for Kaizer Chiefs yet but there have been glimpses of good things.
Hlanti looks set to be a big part of this team for some time to come.
4 Siyethemba Sithebe R13.4 million

Having joined Kaizer Chiefs on a free in contentious circumstances, Sithebe is valued highly by the club.
His absence was felt at Amazulu last term but questions remain about whether he will regain his best form after a long time out of the game.
Sithebe’s stock is rising for now but he will be a player with a big point to prove.
3 Zitha Kwinika R13.4 million

Joining Kaizer Chiefs for an undisclosed fee paid to Stellenbosch FC, Kwinika comes in to refresh the back line.
The 28-year-old is entering his prime as a centre back and is another man whose value has shot up since he joined Kaizer Chiefs.
Can he handle the spotlight at the Soweto Giants.
2 Khama Billiat R20.6 million

No longer Kaizer Chiefs most valuable player but likely still the highest paid at the club is Khama Billiat.
Billiat showed signs that he might be getting back to his best during the last season.
He will have to cope with new partners in the front line this season and might have to play several positions.
1 Keagan Dolly R22.3 million

Keagan Dolly comes in as the most valuable player in the Chiefs squad.
Dolly was consistently the greatest goal threat for the Glamour Boys last term.
He is expected to feature heavily for Arthur Zwane’s side this term.
