The Amakhosi's will be an unstoppable come next season as the Kaizer Chiefs have reportedly completed the signing of striker Fiston Kalala Mayele from Tanzanian giants Young Africans (Yanga). Mayele will be the Chiefs' eighth signing in the current transfer window if these reports prove to be true.
The leaders launched a massive signing campaign that last week featured Dylan Solomons, Camohelo Mahlatsi, George Matlu, Sietemba Sitebe, Zita Quinica and Ashley du Prees, and Youssef Maart. There were rumors that the club would eventually turn their attention to signing a striker, with Hearts of Oak's Frank Etogue initially touted as a prime target for the position. However, after reports that the player would be too expensive, the rumors died down and it looks like Amakhosi is really getting away from pursuing the Cameroonian killer. Now Meyele seems to be a player they have their eye on as well.
Born in DR Congo, Mayele is 28 years old and finished second in the list of top scorers for Yanga in the Tanzanian championship last season with 16 goals. Earlier this week it emerged that he was a real target for the Chiefs and if the reports he signed for the club turn out to be true, it means they will act impressively fast to get the services of a player to buy. News of Mayele's signing for the Chiefs was tweeted by Ghanaian journalist Nuhu Adams this morning.
"South African giant @KaizerChiefs has completed [email protected] Fiston striker Kalala Mayele (28) with a three-year contract will be announced soon. Mayelle is Tanzania's second best player in the Premier League this season with 16 goals.
Let's get started..." Adams tweeted.
On paper, the boss' signing at Mayele would make sense as the club lost Samir Nurkovic, Leonardo Castro, Bernard Parker and Lazarus Cambole in the transfer window. So far, Du Preez is the only forward they have signed who can play in the middle, but it seems a bigger and more physical option is now on the way to Naturena.
