Agent – Baccus Likely To Leave Chiefs

Kearyn Baccus’ agent has stated that the midfielder is likely to leave Amakhosi by the end of the season.

The 30-year-old joined the Glamour Boys from Melbourne City in 2019 and featured in 48 games for the club so far.

However, he’s only started one match for Chiefs in 2021/22 and his agent Mike Makaab believes that the signs are set on a departure of his client.

Baccus’ current contract runs out by the end of the campaign and he wasn’t part of the seven players who received new deals earlier in the week.

“It’s highly unlikely that he’ll sign a new contract come the end of the season,” Makaab said on Gagasi FM.

“We will be on the lookout for opportunities for him. It’s disappointing because I think Kearyn really is a top class player, just unfortunately hasn’t found favour with the current technical staff – and we have to accept that.

“We’ve just got to make sure that we do what’s in his best interest.”

Makaab confirmed that Baccus hasn’t been approached by the club over an extension so far, meaning his time at Naturena is likely coming to an end.

“Not at the moment. There has been very little movement from their side. If they are not offering him a contract extension now, then it’s clear that the likelyhood is that he’ll be leaving the club at the end of the season.”

Chiefs are Baccus third club after he ran out 74 times for Western Sydney Wanderers and 27 times for Melbourne City – both in the Australian A-League.
