According to reports, former Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi could make a surprising switch to rival Soweto team Orlando Pirates. When Chiefs confirmed that the soon-to-be 36-year-old Nigerian's contract will not be renewed when it expires on June 30, Daniel Akpeyi's three and a half year employment with Naturena came to an end earlier this month.
The only issue is that Pirates already have an international goalkeeper in Richard Ofori, and Daniel wants to play, according to the Phakaaathi source. It is possible that he might end up at Pirates, chances are high.
I don't believe he will simply join the Pirates and take over as their number one, therefore it becomes a little challenging for him. However, they have inquired about him because they want to bolster their goalkeeping staff now that Wayne Sandilands has left.
Swallows, Sekhukhune, and SuperSport are further teams in addition to the Pirates. Given that he is an international goalie and one of the top PSL keepers, it came as a surprise to see Chiefs release him.
69 times, DANIEL AKPEYI played for the Kansas City Chiefs.
For the Glamour Boys, Akpeyi participated in 69 games overall across all competitions.
Akpeyi has previously been connected with a move to KwaZulu-Natal team Royal AM, according to the South African website.
Khune, Bruce Bvuma, and Brandon Peterson are the only remaining keepers in after Akpeyi's departure.
