Chiefs ‘In Talks’ With Ex-Downs Player

Kaizer Chiefs have shown interest in former Mamelodi Sundowns forward Keletso Makgalwa, who is now plying his trade in the Motsepe Foundation Championship at Upington City.

Makgalwa had a promising start to his career under the leadership of Pitso Mosimane at Sundowns, which saw him win three league titles and the Telkom Knockout.

But things didn’t work at Downs for the 27-year-old, and at the beginning of the 2021/22 season, he ended up being loaned out to Moroka Swallows where he spent the whole season.

The following season he was loaned out to TS Galaxy but again struggled for game time and had to return to Sundowns five months later. He was later sent to All Stars FC for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.

Downs released him at the beginning of the 2023/24 season where he went to join Upington City in the Motsepe Foundation Championship as a free agent.

The three-time league winner hit the ground running at Bafana Ba Gucci helping the new second tier side to keep their hopes of winning promotion alive by netting four goals and three assists in 10 games.

His performances at City haven’t gone unnoticed as he attracted interest from various teams like Sekhukhune United, Richards Bay and Kaizer Chiefs.

According to a source Chiefs are already in advanced talks with City over the potential move of Makgalwa as they aim to boost their squad for the remainder of the season. The deal could be done in the week if both teams come to an agreement.
