SUNDOWNS WILL BE THE END OF VILAKAZI'S DEAL.
The former Bafana Bafana international will be a free agent when his contract with Sundowns expires at the end of the season. There have been no concrete indications that the Brazilians intend to extend Vilakazi's contract, prompting conjecture linking him to the Chiefs to resurface. Amakhosi is notorious for preferring free agent signings and has a habit of signing older Sundowns players, adding fuel to the flames. Just a few instances include Jose Torealba, Leonardo Castro, and Khama Billiat.
Chiefs made Vilakazi a major focus, In 2012 he left the now-defunct Bidvest Wits, with an overseas move being mooted at the time. When that failed to materialize, he was instead acquired by Sundowns in a high-profile deal.
Despite demonstrating his talent early on, injuries have plagued his stint with Ka bo Yellow. As they strive to improve their offensive capabilities in preparation for another run at the CAF Champions League next season, it looks that the older and marginal players will be the ones to go. Unfortunately for 'Vila,' he appears to fall into that category.
However, it appears that Chiefs fans hoping to see Vilakazi in a Chiefs jersey next season will be disappointed.
