Premier League

Chiefs and Pirates in race to reportedly sign R3.1-million deadly attacker

According to reports, the Chiefs and Pirates are vying for the services of an R3.1-million striker.

Both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are racing to acquire new players in order to catch up to Mamelodi Sundowns, which has been the only team in South Africa to win a trophy this season.

If Mamelodi Sundowns is going to get the greatest players in South Africa and outside on board, they're going to have to come up with enticing incentives to persuade the players and their representatives to agree on contracts.

It has been seven years since Orlando Pirates won the MTN8 competition, whilst Kaizer Chiefs have not won a trophy in that time. The PSL's Kaizer Chiefs have won almost 50 titles since the club's inception, making them one of the league's finest.

Kaizer Chiefs are revamping their brand to help them start winning trophies again and are looking to reorganize their group by adding younger players to reduce the average age of their squad.

Kaizer Chiefs have been linked with numerous PSL targets, but a fresh name has surfaced on their radar in the last few weeks. Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo, an attacking midfielder for Marumo Gallants, is a target for the club, according to recent sources.

Orlando Pirates, on the other hand, have reportedly shown interest in Gallants' R3.2-million (transfermarkt market value) forward, who scored seven goals in the DStv Premiership this season.

It's possible that if Gallants decide to offload the player at the end of this season that interest from both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will drive up the price.

While playing for the Soweto giants would be a great experience for the player, it's not necessarily guaranteed that he'll get to play.
