Done Deal: Wayde Lekay Signs With New Club After Failed Trials With Chiefs

Wayde Lekay signs with new club after trying out with Chiefs didn't go well. 

After being released by The Rockets, former TS Galaxy striker Wayde Lakay has signed with a Cape Town-based team, just weeks after a trial stint with Kaizer Chiefs ended in failure. 

Wayde Lekay, once of TS Galaxy but now of another club, has signed with the Soweto-based giants Kaizer Chiefs after a brief trial stay with the club ended in failure. 

Samir Nurkovic and Lazarous Kambole were among the thirteen players that were crucial to Kaizer Chiefs' success last season but departed, and their absence has been felt in the attack. 

As the new season approached, Amakhosi had only signed Ashley Du Preez to bolster their forward options. Unfortunately, the team could only afford to add Ashley Du Preez to the assault for the 2022/23 season's opening game. 

Mduduzi Shabalala, a reserve team player who scored his first goal for the senior squad on matchday two against Maritzburg United, was promoted to the first team by the Naturena base side. 

Kaizer Chiefs held tryouts for a number of strikers just before the start of the new DStv Premiership season in the hopes that one of them would stand out and give the club an additional attacking option. 

Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, a striker from Burundi, was one of the trialists at the club, and after scoring twice in preseason, it seemed like he'd be signing with the team. 

Despite his contributions during the club's preseason campaign, Amakhosi has decided not to sign him. Wayde Lekay, a striker formerly with the Galaxy, also tried out for the club but was ultimately not signed by the Premier Soccer League heavyweights. 

Lekay, meanwhile, found a new top-flight club despite the setbacks. The 25-year-old striker was signed by Cape Town City FC, as reported by reputable sports publication FARPost.
