Chiefs remain in chase for Sekhukhune midfielder

Maart has gone from being cut from the Orlando Pirates' plans two years ago to establishing himself in the PSL and garnering the attention of the Chiefs.

After gaining promotion with Sekhukhune last season, he has gone on to make 28 appearances in center midfield, scoring three goals.

Arthur Zwane, the head coach of AmaKhosi, and his assistant Dillon Sheppard believe he fits the profile of the type of number six that Naturena need.

Zwane has made it clear that the club needs a number six who would play the ball rather than pile up cards and lose possession.

The Chiefs have already released Kearyn Baccus and transferred Teddy Akumu, two players who had filled the central midfield role, and they will need further reinforcements now that Njabulo Ngcobo will return to central defense.

Sekhukhune has set a price for the Maart, estimated to be R10 million, and has kept to it so far, despite Chiefs' refusal to provide half of their worth.

Maart, who turns 27 next month, is thought to be interested in the move since it will provide him with a much better package and increase his chances of breaking into the Bafana Bafana side.

AmaKhosi have already knocked on the Sekhukhune door without success, but a transfer is still a possibility.
