Three goalkeepers are reportedly on the verge of leaving Kaizer Chiefs, so the team is in the market to sign new ones. Again, there are rumors that Richards Bay FC’s first-choice goalkeeper might be joining Kaizer Chiefs.
Salim Magoola is a goalkeeper who Kaizer Chiefs believe is ready for the PSL, so they plan to step up their search.
The fact that Bruce Bvuma, Itumeleng Khune, and Brandon Petersen have not prioritized re-signing with the Kaizer Chiefs as their current contracts are about to expire speaks volumes.
Although Kaizer Chiefs are still interested, Magoola hasn’t been able to stop Richards Bay from toying with relegation.
“Salim Magoola is still an option for Chiefs.His name has come up again as an option although there have been no official talks,” a source told Soccer Laduma.
“He is one of the players who will be closely monitored for the rest of the season as Chiefs are searching for a goalkeeper to add to the team for next season.”
ChippaUnited goalkeeperStanley Nwabili was the subject of inquiries from Kaizer Chiefs, but the Eastern Cape club’s FIFA transfer ban may have derailed those plans.
“Stanley (Nwabili) is not the only goalkeeper they are looking at. There are other goalkeepers they are monitoring as well but after his performances this season, the scouts have recommended that they should look at him and he is on their radar right now,” an insider told Soccer Laduma.
“The only big issue would be Chippa United wanting to find his replacement before they can let him go. This season he has been the main difference in many games which the team has either won or drawn because of his good performances in most of those games.
“But yeah, the interest is there from Chiefs and you know every player would want to play for a big team like Chiefs. And after all, he wants recognition from the Nigerian national team selectors and playing for Chiefs would give him that platform but at the end of the day it will depend on the two teams,” the source concluded.
