Kaizer Chiefs Midfielder Sabelo Radebe unlikely to remain at Chiefs as two PSL Clubs tussle over his signature, Sabelo Radebe who was promised under the leadership of coach Gavin Hunt has not been able to get required game time since his promotion.
Cape Town Spurs could be looking to sign a Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, the Siya crew has been informed.
The club is expected to go through a major battle to avoid relegation from the PSL this season, so they will need all the reinforcements required to eventually succeed.
Spurs have a serious challenge in the January transfer window, hoping they can improve the first team in such a way that they can turn things around during the second half of the campaign. The Cape Town club has already signed a few players on loan recently, so it remains to be seen how much more they want to do with Ernst Middendorp appointed as their new head coach.
Siya sources have indicated that the Urban Warriors could be inquiring about the availability of Chiefs youngster Sabelo Radebe with the intention of taking him on loan in January.
As previously reported by Soccer Laduma, Richards Bay may be interested in the services of the 23-year-old too.
The source added that the Cape Town technical team could have identified areas they need boosting and midfield is one of them.
“For now they are talking about a possible loan move. It’s actually Cape Town Spurs who have inquired about him as they say they want to strengthen the squad ahead of the start of the second round of the season,” said the Siya source.
“He still has a long contract with Chiefs and he is still young so I don’t think they would want to sell him now. It will depend on the talks whether he goes for loan or if he will stay and fight for his place,” the source said.
A second source added that Chiefs believe he has a future at their club so the only factor that could possibly help Spurs is a loan deal.
“Yes, Spurs are inquiring about Sabelo (Radebe) but nothing has been finalised yet because for now it’s just interest from them,” said the second source.
“They have shown interest to have him in January and for now if it happens it could only be a loan move. He is in the technical team’s plans mainly for the future and getting game time from somewhere would actually not be a bad idea.
“Management are the ones to decide at the end of the day,” the source added.
Soccer Laduma contacted both clubs for comment but no response was received while this story was prepared.
