Come the end of this season Kaizer Chiefs will once again be able to dip into the transfer market, while that is great news for Gavin Hunt there are a handful of players who are in for an anxious finish to the season.
Ten Kaizer Chiefs players whose contracts expire in June
Here are the ten Kaizer Chiefs players who will be out of contract at the end of the season if they aren’t able to clinch new deals.
The former Cape Town City midfielder has been a regular fixture in Gavin Hunt’s Kaizer Chiefs teams this season and might expect to be offered an extension before the end of the season.
Manyama turned 30 last year but looks to have a handful of good years left in his legs yet and if Amakhosi leave it too late they may find themselves losing a stalwart.
The 31-year-old fullback has assumed captaincy duties this term but has seen his season hampered by multiple injuries.
He is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained early on during the victory over TTM in January. Mphahlele will have to prove that he can put his injury woes behind him to earn a new deal.
Chiefs’ versatile right-sided player Moleko has made occasional appearances for Hunt’s side this season but has been unable to nail down a place.
With Chiefs likely to bring in quite a few fresh faces, Moleko might prove a luxury Bobby Motaung is no longer willing to fund.
Ntshangase has promised much but delivered little for Kaizer Chiefs to date, and he is yet to score or register an assist this season having not completed a full 90 monutes at any stage this term.
He started the Glamour Boys Nedbank Cup tie against Richards Bay but was whipped off at half-time in a match which saw Amakhosi suffer a shock defeat.
It looks like Ntshangase will be shown the door at the end of the season unless he hits his straps in spectacular fashion.
Parker continues to put in the work for Kaizer Chiefs despite his advancing years and has shown great utility in the last few years of his career.
The well-travelled 34-year-old brings a wealth of experience but that is no guarantee that he will be at Naturena next season.
Zulu has made a good case for a contract extension as he has broken through as a solution to Kaizer Chiefs’ long-standing left back issue.
The product of the Maritzburg United Academy has already featured 17 times for Kaizer Chiefs this season and would likely only leave if Hunt and Motaung can find a replacement deemed to be an upgrade.
The veteran Zimbabwean midfielder appears to be winding down his Kaizer Chiefs career and it would be very surprising if the former skipper was offered an extension.
Katsande is still highly-rated by some for his cool head and solid performances in holding midfield, but we are talking about the Glamour Boys after all.
Billiat hasn’t really lived up to his hype, and it would be a big surprise if he was offered another massive deal to stay in Soweto.
The Warriors attacker will likely have to take a significant pay-cut to keep his place in the Kaizer Chiefs squad.
Bvuma hasn’t seized his chances to impress in the past, and it is inclear how many more he will be given before he is shown the door.
Now at the point in his career were regular football is a must, the keeper and his club are probably better off parting ways.
Petersen has been at Kaizer Chiefs for more than four years and is yet to make a first team appearance.
The former Wits Junior will have to find a new club at the end of the season.
