Another Free Agent Wants To Join Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter and his technical team have been busy during the transfer period. They tried to rope in all the players that they thought would be vital in achieving the teams goals. One highly rated player wants to join the Glamour boys .

Thabo Cele, a free agent from South Africa's U23 team, is said to be interested in joining Kaizer Chiefs. Last week, the South African U23 midfielder was practicing with a Polish top division team, but no deal appears to have materialized.

Cele has spent the last five years in Portugal after graduating from the KZN school in 2016. He was last on Cova Piedade's books in June, although his contract had ended. Despite South Africa's group stage exit, he shined during the Olympics in Tokyo and has piqued the curiosity of South African clubs, especially Kaizer Chiefs.

"We've gotten a lot of calls from PSL clubs, some asking about his position after hearing he's a free agency." “Some of these calls occurred before the Olympics, and others came right after the Olympics opened,” a source close to the player recently told iDiski Times.

Apart from Chiefs, clubs like Maritzburg United, AmaZulu Cape Town City, and TS Galaxy are said to be interested in signing the midfielder. However, sources close to his team have told this magazine that it is just a matter of time before he returns to Naturena, as this was his chosen destination after his abroad options fell through after the Olympics.

Cele would help to invigorate the current Chiefs midfield, which comprises players like Cole Alexander (32), Bernard Parker (35), Phathutshedzo Nange (29), and Lebgang Manyama, who are all in their late thirties (30).

Cele had intended to stay in Europe, but a return to South Africa now appears to be highly possible.
