Kaizer Chiefs have finally found the new striker Arthur Zwane desperately wanted and are expected to confirm their new signing imminently.
Zwane had insisted his squad still needed a different kind of striker, a target man, who can hold up the ball, with many of their attacking players being somewhat smaller, fast-paced and very skilful.
Burundi international Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, who had impressed the club on trial, has agreed to a deal with Amakhosi, iDiski Times have learnt.
The 24-year-old, who ironically scored a goal in FNB Stadium for his country in a 1-1 draw against Namibia in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, had netted two goals in three pre-season outings for Amakhosi.
On Monday, Bimenyimana’s former club Rayon Sport posted an image of the striker appearing at the club’s ‘Rayon Sport Day’, where their new signings were presented – the social media post was captioned “he’s back”, however the club’s coach Christian-Francis Haringingo had stated the striker will not re-join his club.
Instead, Bimenyimana has agreed to a two-year deal with an option for another year with the Glamour Boys and will be unveiled shortly.
