Kaizer Chiefs are still actively looking to strengthen their squad before the Friday 22 September deadline. A central midfielder and a left-sided central defender are the priorities.
Kaizer Chiefs trailing Mthethwa
Stellenbosch FC’s CEO Rob Benadie has revealed that Chiefs have made a formal approach for their star midfielder Sibongiseni Mthethwa. The club, however, is not keen to release the 28-year-old midfield schemer. Chiefs currently have first-choice pairing Edson Castillo and Yusuf Maart in the engine room, with Siyethemba Sithebe and Samkelo Zwane struggling to get regular minutes in the first team.
“A few clubs have shown interest, including an offer from Chiefs, but as of today [Saturday], he remains firmly with us,” Benadie said as quoted by SABC Sport.

Fleurs leaves SuperSport
Luke Fleurs, who can operate on the left-hand side of central defence, would give Chiefs more versatility, depth and flexibility. Critically, it would free up Edmilson Dove to specialise at left-back and provide a rotation option for Thatayaone Ditlhokwe. Now he’s a free agent and this isn’t the first time the Glamour Boys have been linked with a move for the 23-year-old.
