The explanations for why the newest member of the Kaizer Chiefs chose Amakhosi over their most ferocious rivals, Orlando Pirates, have been made public.
Amakhosi made four new squad additions this week in preparation for the next season.
In an effort to strengthen their roster for the upcoming season, the team has been quite active in the transfer market so far.
Orlando Pirates were reportedly interested in Dillon Solomons, one of the players the organization announced earlier this week.
After a spectacular season, he moved from Swallows FC to Amakhosi.
The player's agent, Grant Nieuwenhuys, discussed his client's choice to sign with the Chiefs as opposed to the Pirates in an interview with Kickoff Magazine.
He asserted that they rejected the Pirates' offer in favor of the Chiefs' offer.
As a lifelong Chiefs supporter, Dillon informed me that reaching that objective meant a lot to him.
The Chiefs offered a respectable deal, but according to Nieuwenhuys, the player told him he would be eager to go if they made an offer.
