The Six Chiefs Stars With Expiring Contracts

Kaizer Chiefs announced contract extensions for the seven players on Monday, but the deals of six others are still running out by the end of the season.

Amakhosi extended the deals of Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Sabelo Radebe, Happy Mashiane, Reeve Frosler, Keletso Sifama, Bruce Bvuma and Thabo Mokoena, with Sporting director Kaizer Motaung Jr. stating the club wants to “reduce the average of the squad”.

However, this leaves several senior players in limbo over their future.

The likes of Daniel Akpeyi, Samir Nurkovic, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Kearyn Baccus, Bernard Parker and Lazarous Kambole all have expiring deals, according to Transfermarkt.

While the club has an option to extend Mphahlele’s deal, Akpeyi is also expected to sign a new contract, but the future of the others remains uncertain. 

Motaung Jr. confirmed “there are senior players’ contracts that need to be reviewed and we are in the process of evaluating and finalising those deals”, with “further announcements to be made in due course”.

Kambole’s future seems to be away from the club after he made just two appearances this season and was transfer-listed ahead of the campaign without a move materialising.

Baccus also only made three appearances in the first half of the campaign, leaving his future at Naturena in doubt.

Meanwhile, Parker, who made 15 appearances this campaign so far, probably holds his future in his own hands, while Nurkovic’s stay at the club will likely depend on his performances in the second half of 2021/22 after he missed large parts of the season due to an injury.
