Kaizer Chiefs Set to extend Eagles Goalie Akpeyi's Contract

According to a Kickoff report, South African side Kaizer Chiefs are likely to offer Nigerian international goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi a two-year extension to his current deal, which expires at the end of June 2022.

Akpeyi joined the Amakhosi from league rivals Chippa United in January 2019 and has been battling Itumeleng Khune for the team's number one gloves. The club's other goalkeepers are Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Petersen.

Chiefs' 2019/20 title challenge was aided by Akpeyi's experience and shot-stopping abilities, but the team eventually finished second to eventual Premier Soccer League champion Mamelodi Sundowns.

Kaiser Chiefs have had a sluggish start to the season, with the self-proclaimed most supported team in Sub-Saharan Africa wallowing in ninth place on the Premier Soccer League table.

However, with Akpeyi back in the starting eleven, their form has improved in recent weeks. In three games, the 35-year-old goalkeeper has preserved two clean sheets, allowing only once, guiding Stuart Baxter's side to one win and two draws.

When the Phefeni Glamour Boys face Super Sports United in a matchday eight battle on Sunday, the former Warri Wolves goalkeeper is anticipated to start.
