Done Deal: Chiefs 'Confirms' Their New BIG signing

Following their 3-0 Dstv Premiership victory over Maritzburg, Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs confirmed the signing of a highly regarded player. Picture.

Edmilson Dove, a former left back for Cape Town City, was reportedly scouted at the team's Naturena training area and is being evaluated by Chiefs.

Meanwhile, the team has confirmed his arrival via their official Twitter account, putting an end to the rumors. The Glamour Boys have signed the Mozambican international to a two-year contract with a third year of play.

"Edwardson Dove Joins the Chiefs. Edmilson Gabriel Dove has signed a two-year contract with Amakhosi that includes an additional year's option for the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season "The heads have confirmed it.

In addition, "the talented left-footer who can play at wing-back and center-back has been practicing with Amakhosi and will be eligible to play once his paperwork has been finalized," they said.


Dove was let go without any fanfare from Cape Town City in January after he sought to be freed from his contract.

For the most part, this was because he was never able to win back his starting role with the first team after being sidelined for an extended period of time with an injury.


After five years at Cape Town City, where he was a fixture before his injury at age 28, the club released him.

In 104 games (across all competitions), he made a notable contribution by scoring five times.

Could we trust this signature?

There's little doubt that Chiefs need another defender, and they'd benefit greatly from someone with Dove's versatility.

They had been reliant on the right-footed Reeve Frosler, the inexperienced Sibusiso Mabiliso, and the injury-prone Sifiso Hlanti, so now head coach Arthur Zwane will have a lot of choices on the left side of defense.

So, it's safe to assume that Chiefs will engage in further transfer transactions, given their absence of an offensive focal point was noticeable despite their 3–1 victory on Tuesday.
