Official: Chiefs Part Ways With Player Who Still Had One Year Left On His Contract

Official: Chiefs Part Ways With Player Who Still Had One Year Left On His Contract.

Kaizer Chiefs football club parted ways with 14 players in total to date and the club's former goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter, whilst placing Anthony Akumu Agay on the transfer list to find a suitable club who'll be interested in his services as they wanted to cash in on the player.

The Soweto-based club also added 8 new additions to the club's first team who is the replacements for those who parted with the Naturena side. Amakhosi signed some very interesting players who will have the chance to prove themselves worthy in the pre-season tournament set to commence soon.

The club has now opted to officially part ways with Anthony Akumu Agay who was initially placed on transfer. The club and the player came to a mutual agreement to terminate his contract early.

Akumu's contract was set to expire in June 2023, but the club has now decided against keeping him on for much longer as he's now the first player to leave the club during the course of the July transfer window, as the others left the club in the off-season between the conclusion of the 2021/22 season and the opening of the July transfer window.

With Akumu gone and the transfer window open, the club could opt to still add a few more players as they need to find a replacement for him, if one of the 8 additions to the first team is not already one of the player's replacement.

Since the club also added Ashley Du Preez to the attack and parted with three attackers, the club might also opt to sign another striker in the window. The club has been linked to Tanzanian striker Fiston Mayele who plays for Young Africans, but we'll have to wait and see if more signings is heading to Naturena.
