The latest post from Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Pule Ekstein might just suggest that an end to his stint at the club is drawing to a close.
The 28-year-old has only weeks remaining on his contract with the Naturena-based outfit, and is said to have hit a dead end when it comes to negotiations.
Having finally proven his worth in the gold and black, several suitors have swooped in closer and judging by a post shared on Twitter, he has resigned himself to finding a new home ahead of the new season.
In his third season since enjoying some airtime in the first team, the player has made 23 appearances in all competitions, netting three goals in what has been a season of slim pickings for the Glamour Boys.
Till We Meet Again 🙌🙏

“He is a very important player in the squad and deserves to play like every player who is 100% committed and directed and shows it on the training ground.
Ekstein made a brief cameo during his side’s one-all draw against Lamontville Golden Arrows, after he had been a no show during an identical result against Black Leopards, just over a week prior.
