Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly on the verge of renewing the contract of one of its players, who was put on a transfer list at the beginning of the current season.
Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya contract with Amakhosi, will expire at the end of the 2021/22 season. The left-back was transfer listed alongside former Zesco United striker Lazarus Kambole. But no club came looking for the two players and they remained with the club.
There's been a remarkable turnaround for Ntiya-Ntiya, following the club preffered left-back Sfiso Hlanti suffering along term injury and expected to be out for the large part of the season. That was given the defender to impress coach Stuart Baxter. While things have not improved for Kambole things are looking good for the 25-year-old who has played four DSTV Premieship matches. But three of those came in the last three matches.
The club feel he has done well since Hlanti picked up a long term injury and they feel he should be rewarded a new deal they are going to renew his contract, a source told Daily Sun.
Ntiya-Ntiya was promoted to Amakhosi first team in January 2018, he has featured in 53 matches and is yet to find the back of the net. Meanwhile Chiefs management is also expected to extend contract of Nigerian goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, who has been used as the number goalkeeper by Baxter in the current season.
