Kaizer Chiefs are now set to firmly move on from Khama Billiat, with a bid made for young winger who impressed during the COSAFA Cup!
So far Chiefs have announced, Thathayoane Ditlhokwe, Given Msimango, Mduduzi Mdantsane, Edson Castillo, Pule Mmodi, Ranga Chivaviro and Tebogo Potsane.
Those players putting pen to paper at Chiefs has been more or less an open secret for a while now, with fans and the football fraternity just waiting for the club to officially announce them. Looking at that list, three of the six in Chivaviro, Mmodi, Mdantsane and Potsane are capable of playing in offensive positions. But it looks like new head coach Molefi Ntseki may not be done yet in the transfer window.
Just last week this publication reported that Chiefs had made an enquiry for Malawian international Lanjesi Nkhoma. Nkhoma is a 21-year-old winger who currently plies his trade for Malawian giants Nyasa Big Bullets, he was clearly one of the standout players in that COSAFA Cup tournament and has clearly caught the eye of the Amakhosi management. That is because, according to Soccer Laduma , that inquiry has turned into a bid, and a big one!
CHIEFS OFFER R4.3 MILLION FOR NKHOMA
“It’s a lot of money. It is about 255 million Kwacha (R4.3 million), I am not sure how much it could be in South African rands but the offer is now in. I am not sure when it started or when they sent it through but today (Tuesday) Bullets officials were talking about it. It’s actually tempting for the club though they still want to have the youngster (Nkhoma) in the team,” the source said to the same website.
The source went on to add that Nkhoma can even be a replacement for Billiat at Chiefs. Chiefs have already signed two wingers in the current transfer window, with Mmodi and Potsane believed to be ready to bolster the club’s threat from wide areas. But with the reports that the Glamour Boys are still trying to get rid of Kgaugelo Sekgota and Kamohelo Mahlatsi, it seems there could definitely be room for at least one more wide player in the squad.
Lanjesi has been seen as one of the best young players in the Africa continent.
