Orlando Pirates joins 3 PSL clubs to battle for this Star, released Kaizer Chiefs.

The Kaizer Chiefs have made room for Orlando Pirates by releasing one of their PSL clubs to compete for this Star.

The competition for Akpeyi involves four different PSL clubs.

Daniel Akpeyi, the goalkeeper for the Super Eagles, will not be without a club for much longer as a result of the fact that four South African top-flight clubs have joined the competition for his signing.


As a result of Kaizer Chiefs' decision not to offer the Nigerian international player a new contract after the conclusion of his previous agreement, Akpeyi is now free to sign with any team that he chooses.

The former goalkeeper for Heartland FC made 69 appearances for the Amakhosi after joining the team in January 2019. During that time, he allowed only 61 goals while preserving 27 clean sheets.


Even though he is 35 years old, Akpeyi is still considered to be one of the greatest goalkeepers in the Premier Soccer League. During the previous season, he played for Kaizer Chiefs and was responsible for five clean sheets out of a total of 12 matches.

In addition, he is one of the goalkeepers with the greatest experience in South Africa, having competed in 149 Premier Soccer League matches and nine matches in the CAF Champions League throughout the course of his career.


Although it is surprise that Kaizer Chiefs would release Akpeyi, it is not surprising that a number of other clubs are interested in signing the shot-stopper.

The Citizen reports that four teams that have previously won the league — Orlando Pirates, Moroka Swallows, SuperSport United, and Sekhukhune — have expressed an interest in signing the goalkeeper for the Super Eagles.

As he enters the latter stages of his career, it is speculated that Akpeyi will only sign with a club that can promise him a consistent number of playing opportunities.

I appreciate you checking out this post and taking the time to do so.
