Chiefs Keeping An Eye On Highly-Rated Ugandan Star?

Kaizer Chiefs football club recently added a new defender to their squad.

Former Cape Town City FC defender Edmilson Dove signed with the Soweto-based giants on Thursday, as he penned a two-year deal with the club with a one-year option to extend.

In addition to adding Dove to the club's defence, the club announced a contract termination of another defender just hours after signing a new addition.

Sibusiso Mabiliso who spent only one season with the Naturena base side and Kaizer Chiefs parted ways in Friday just a day before the club is set to face Mamelodi Sundowns in the DStv Premiership away from home.

According to Kaizer Chiefs, Sibusiso Mabiliso's departure is by matual consent to end his stint in Soweto. Mabiliso only played six league matches for the PSL giants since his big move from Durban-based side AmaZulu FC.

With the release of defender Mabiliso, and the new signing of defender Edmilson Dove, the club is believed to be monitoring another defender to further strengthen the club's defence.

According to a source, Kaizer Chiefs is currently monitoring the progress of Ugandan player Halid Lwaliwa. The Vipers player decided against a contract renewal with the club after spending eight years with them.

The source revealed that the centre-back is a wanted player by a big PSL club. “It’s true that Halid Lwaliwa is wanted by one of the big clubs in South Africa,” the source said.

Although it's reported that Kaizer Chiefs is monitoring the players situation, Durban-based side AmaZulu FC is believed to be the front-runner in the chase for the player's signature according to the source.

With Austin Thabani Dube still excluded from Arthur Zwane's side, and being linked with a loan move to his former club Richards Bay FC, the Ugandan defender could be a replacement in the club's defence should Dube leave on the borrow deal.
