Kaizer Chiefs could look to extend the contract of one of the club’s midfielders.
Insiders at the club have suggested that former AmaZulu FC attacker Siyethemba Sithebe looks set to stay longer at the club beyond his current contract which expires in June 2024.
Indications are that Sithebe, who signed an initial two-year deal in 2022 when he joined the team from Usuthu, is expected to extend his stay by another two years.
Soccer Laduma have revealed that Amakhosi would want to avoid the player signing a pre-contract January 2024.
“Its true. He struggled with game-time at the start of the season and management was thinking of loaning him out in January but since Njabulo Blom left and Cole Alexander out injured, the technical team has entrusted that central midfield position to him and it seems he has impressed the team so much so that they want to keep him for another two years,” a source indicated.
“They don’t want to wait until its late and that’s why they have set the ball rolling in terms of negotiations for the extension of his contract.”
The 30-year-old has represented Bafana Bafana on eight occasions has proven to be a key figure in the Chiefs midfield after the departure of Blom to the MLS in the USA.
