Chiefs Talented Midfielder's Future To Be Assessed

Since he made a move from Melbourne City to Kaizer Chiefs in 2019, Kearyn Baccus has struggled to cement his place in the Amakhosi midfield. More often than not, he found, he found himself in the bench. Stuart Baxter's predecessors Ernst Middendorp and Gavin Hunt didn't have faith in him, so does Baxter.

Baccus is yet to still make an appearance for Chiefs this season, and according to the reports, there is a concern. He is now in the final months of his contract. At this stage, naturally, game-time determines whether you are offered an extension or not.

Prior to the start of the 2019/20 season, it was widely reported that Baccus had requested to leave Chiefs as he felt homesick, but the likely departure was. Although he concluded the 2019/20 season, it’s understood that he was still considering leaving the club. But the stumbling block was the fact that Chiefs were unable to overturn their FIFA ban to sign new players and therefore were not going to allow a key player to depart without being able to get an ideal replacement.

According to the latest information, Baccus and his camp will assess the next steps in the coming months as Baccus will be in a position to sign a pre-contract elsewhere in January.
