AGENT UPDATES: The West African Striker’s Signature Is Still Sought By Kaizer Chiefs.

 

In the last transfer window, Amakhosi assistant coach Arthur Zwane revealed that the club was looking for a striker.

After the January transfer window closed over a week ago, Kaizer Chiefs are still looking to strengthen their striking department.

Last month, the Soweto giants were linked with Victor Letsoalo of Royal AM and an unnamed Western African striker.

Royal AM, on the other hand, made it clear that Letsoalo would not be sold and that the Bafana Bafana international would remain at the Durban-based club.

While top local football agent Mike Makaab revealed the Chiefs’ interest in an unnamed West African striker late last month.

The Soweto giants were offered a striker from ‘West Africa,’ according to Prosport International’s chief executive officer, Gagasi FM.

On Wednesday morning, Maakab responded to a fan who asked for an update on Amakhosi’s hunt for a marksman on Twitter.

“Mike Makaab, good morning. I’m not sure if you can answer this, but has the West African striker you offered to Chiefs received any positive feedback or are talks still ongoing?” a fan inquired

Maakab, who represents Chiefs stars Bernard Parker and Siyabonga Ngezana, responded, “[Talks] still ongoing.”

The Chiefs currently have a full foreign quota, meaning they are unable to register a non-South African player in the PSL.

Amakhosi currently has Zambian international Lazarous Kambole, Nigerian goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, Colombian Leonardo Castro, Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic, and Kenyan midfielder Anthony Akumu on their books.

The Glamour Boys, on the other hand, are said to be working to ensure that Akpeyi and Castro get permanent residency permits (PRPs) after living in South Africa for more than five years.

The duo would be registered as locals with the PSL once they obtained their PRPs, freeing up two foreign spots for the Naturena-based giants in the process.

Khama Billiat, a Zimbabwean star who plays for the Chiefs, is registered as a local after receiving his PRP while playing for Mamelodi Sundowns in 2015.
