Former SuperSport United winger Aswin Appollis is attracting interest from South Africa’s most successful team in history.
Oswin Apollis who joined Polokwane City from Pretoria Callies has been on fire this season for the Limpopo side, his speed and skill on the wide channels has also earned him a National team call up and is going to Ivory Coast to the AFCON in what is deemed a competitive squad.
There has not been much ac- tivity in the transfer market since the window opened at the beginning of the year, but Siya sources have indicated that behind the scenes, Kaizer Chiefs have been very busy.
Indications are that the club are in a race to beat archrivals Orlando Pirates to the services of rising star Oshwin Appollis as well as to the signature of Namibian international Riaan Hanamub.
Appollis has been a beacon of light for Polokwane City since joining at the beginning of the year from Motsepe Foundation Championship side Pretoria Callies, with the Buccaneers having indicated their desire.
to lure him to Houghton. The attacking midfield-
er’s standout performances for Rise and Shine have even caught the attention of na- tional team head coach Hugo Broos, who has included him in the 23-man squad that has departed for Cote d’Ivoire, where they will participate in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Hanamub, on the other hand, is a highly-rated versatile de- fender capable of being de- ployed either as a left back or sometimes in central defence by his club AmaZulu FC and his national team coach Collin Benjamin.
He has also been in excel- lent form this season and has earned a reputation as a reli- able, hard-working fullback blessed with the ability to both defend and attack de- pending on the flow of the game.
He featured in the Brave Warriors’ international friendly preparation match against Ghana this week, where he shut out their fear- some central striker Jordan Ayew in a game that ended goalless.
There is no doubt that the 28-year-old is being looked at as someone to offer stiff chal- lenge to Sifiso Hlanti, who, despite his wealth of experi- ence, could be nearing the end of the road at this level.
