“Done deal!” Kaizer Chiefs set to sign Tshabalala after AFCON!

Kaizer Chiefs could be set to announce a surprise signing that could make their fans very happy after the AFCON tournament.

Kaizer Chiefs could be on the verge of adding to their squad, ahead of the second half of the season.

Chiefs are thought be close to wrapping up the signing of a Tanzanian left-back named Mohamed Hussein.

Left back is position of concern for Chiefs, with Sifiso Hlanti, Edmilson Dove and Reeve Frosler often deployed. Now with both Hlanti and Dove in their last year of contract, it is clear the club need a long-term solution. Both players may still renew their deals, however, but indications are that Hussein is a huge club target. Now according to the latest reports Amakhosi have all but wrapped up a deal for the player known as Tshabalala.

Hussein inherited the name Tshabalala from his idol in Chiefs legend Siphiwe, due to his exploits on the left flank. Now according to Soccer-Laduma, he may also were the same colours as the former Bafana Bafana star.


“The club has now embarked on looking for a left back who could possibly replace Sifiso (Hlanti). They want to bring in Tanzanian Mohamed (Hussein) but that can only happen after the Afcon as the player is part of the Tanzania national team that is currently at Afcon. He was even in the squad that lost 30 to Morocco, so everything will be finalised after Afcon,” said one source to the publication.

Another source also seemed to confirm that Hussein would be heading to Chiefs soon.

“The club and the player are both preparing for a new life away from Tanzania but that will all depend on Chiefs right now. The deal is as good as done as we speak but they are waiting for the Afcon to finish because many things could happen during Afcon and that’s why they have agreed to wait until after the tournament,” said the second source.

Chiefs fans will surely welcome the news of the addition of Hussein and hope he improves the team. This could also be a sign that they’re phasing out Hlanti or could lose Dove.
