With Sifiso Hlanti’s contract about to expire in June, his representative has released the most recent information regarding his client’s future at Kaizer Chiefs.
The left-back has had a standout season with Arthur Zwane’s team since making a full recovery from the long-term ailment.
In 25 games in all competitions, he made an appearance, and he scored twice.
Hlanti committed to Amakhosi in 2021, and his contract expires in two months. The former Swallows defender’s contract can, however, be extended by one additional year by the Chiefs.
If the club were desperate to keep him, they would have called his camp by now.
Sizwe Ntshangase, the player’s agent, claims that Chiefs have not yet said if they will activate the option.
“We’re not having discussions with Chiefs, we’re waiting for them to decide [whether they exercise the option to extend, We’re not waiting for June, Chiefs will contact us anytime.” he told FARPost.
Whether they intend to do the same in this window is yet to be determined.
It should be kept in mind, though, that Arthur Zwane’s management has always been open about wanting to assemble a new team.
The Chiefs’ contracts with Khama Billiat, Eric Mathoho, Phathutshedzo Nange, and Itumeleng Khune will also expire this year.
Nange is reportedly being considered by SuperSport United, with Gavin Hunt reportedly hoping to reunite with the midfielder. They shared a job at the long-gone Bidvest Wits.
Meanwhile, Mathoho has already been informed that he is not included in the future plans, as FARPost revealed last week. After June, he will be a free agent.
It’s unclear at this time whether the club will decide to keep Billiat and Khune.
