Transfer target looking beyond Kaizer Chiefs?

Kaizer Chiefs are expected to make some big changes on and off the field at the end of the season.

Chiefs will be hoping to appoint a new coaching staff that can change the club’s fortunes going forward.

That change of fortunes will require some freedom for the new coaching staff to dip into the market. This being in an effort to find some quality players that can come into the club and take the Chiefs brand back to where it belongs. It is no secret that Amakhosi have had a large turnover of players over the last two pre-season transfer windows. Neither have been a success, unfortunately. 

Ahead of the 2022/23 season, Chiefs signed Ashley du Preez, Zitha Kwinika, George Matlou, Kamohelo Mahlatsi, Yusuf Maart, Siyethemba Sithebe and Dillan Solomons. Then as the season progressed they added Edmilson Dove, Caleb Bimenyimana and Christian Saile. Out of those 10 players, two have been released by the club already, while at least five have been linked with an exit.

Chiefs targeted Dortley last season

At the start of the current season, Chiefs revamped their playing squad, making nine signings. These included Thathoyaone Dithlokwe, Given Msimango, Mduduzi Mdantsane, Pule Mmodi, Ranga Chivaviro, Edson Castillo and Potsane. Then, with the season already under way, Chiefs added Jasond Gonzales and Sibongiseni Mthethwa. In October, they added a 10th signing, the late centre back Luke Fleurs. The former SA U23 star joined Amakhosi on a red transfer from SuperSport United

One reported transfer target they didn’t sign is Cape Town Spurs left-back Rushwin Dortley. Now according to his agency speaking to KickOff.com Chiefs are looking likely to miss out again!

Player aiming abroaf

“Rushwin is a quality player in terms of his position, you don’t see a lot in South Africa, left-footed centre-back, with a good physique, a good stature, easy on the eye, cool, calm and collected, with a certain aggression when needed. We wouldn’t comment (on Chiefs). Obviously Chiefs have signed a left-footed centre-back (since then). Our focus as an agency, has always been to take the quality players abroad as a first option. That has always been our company policy, although not so easy these days given the lack of footage available to overseas clubs, with the Wyscout problem becoming increasingly frustrating for clubs, players and agencies alike. That being said, we are confident that Rushwin’s future is very bright,” said Dortley’s agency SSG. 

Chiefs could now be looking elsewhere for left-sided defensive addition,however, with Dortley’s eyes abroad.
