Kaizer Chiefs' search for a striker continues as former FC Stellenbosch forward Fuad Johnson is spotted in Amakhosi. After a stellar display at the Multichoice Disci Challenge last season as Stellies' top scorer, it's not too surprising to learn that 19-year-old Johnson is training with the Glamor Boys.
The tall striker reportedly also took part in the Kaizer Chiefs friendly. Sources say Fouad Johnson is currently training with a team based in Gauteng and there may be an offer for a free agent who recently split with Stellenbosch in June," reports Kick Off.
"The 19-year-old is known to have played against the senior team in a closed-door friendly at the weekend."
The report adds to explain the strange reasons behind Johnson's departure from Stellies. The player and his agent Grant Nieuwenhuys, who also replaced Dylan Solomons, are said to believe the centre-forward deserves more than what the Cape Winelands club has to offer.
"Johnson's potential transfer comes after Steve Barker's team and player representatives failed to agree on the terms of a professional contract," the report added.
Meanwhile, Arthur Zwane is sure to sign at least one other signing for the number 9 following the departures of Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, while Ashley Du Preez is the only signing so far.
