 Chiefs ready to welcome New signing but his club coy on deal

Kaizer Chiefs are already bolstering their roster for next season, having reached an agreement with Chippa United to sign big Cameroon-born striker Bienvenu Eva Nga for the coming season.

Chiefs are also close to signing Sipho Mbule from SuperSport United, who has been at odds with his club’s management. Mbule is unlikely to feature for United again, according to manager Stan Matthews on MetroFM Sport.

“Chiefs want Nga and they have agreed terms with Chippa United. It’s not finalised yet but Chippa are a selling club and this will be finalised at the end of the season. It will be a good deal for all the parties, Chippa, Chiefs and the player,” said an informer close to the events.

However, Chilli Boys senior official Morgan Mammila stated that they do not have any knowledge about Nga moving to Chiefs. “Those are rumours and we do not comment or give our time to such. In the PSL, if a player scores two goals then he is linked to all the big clubs.

“The club will talk about players coming in or those leaving the club at the end of the season,” said Mammila.

Mbule’s agent, Mike Makaab, was quoted in January as claiming that Chiefs cannot sign a pre-contract with Amakhosi since SuperSport have the option to extend Sipho Mbule’s contract and, until they decide against it, he is not free to strike a deal with another club until United agrees. Matthews, on the other hand, may be forced to reconsider their attitude.

“Sipho has been excused from training, his head space is not right. He’s not reliable and we’d rather play without him and finish lower in the league,” Matthews said.

“He can’t refuse to sign a contract, Sipho is in a contract. He still has a couple of years left in his contract with SuperSport, so there is no choice about that.”
