Kaizer Chiefs transfer news: Five possible January exits

Kaizer Chiefs are in good standing as far as the league title chase is concerned, heading into the second half of the season, and could deem a number of their squad members surplus to requirements.

The Glamour Boys brought in a few reinforcements at the start of the campaign, with some players falling down the pecking order as a result.

With the transfer window just weeks away, a few of these players could seek a move elsewhere.

Ntshangase arrived at Kaizer Chiefs as a high-profile signing, but his involvement with the first-team squad waned following Ernst Middendorp’s arrival.

The 26-year-old is yet to feature for the club in the ongoing season, having last played in April.

He has been linked with a move away from Naturena on a loan basis.

After showing great promise in the 2017/18 season, Lorenzo Gordinho was shipped off to Bloemfontein Celtic on a loan transfer.

The defender returned to Naturena at the start of 2019, but has gradually fallen out of favour.

He has played just five league matches in the current season, and has been leapfrogged by the younger Siyabonga Ngezana in the pecking order.

Joseph Malongoane

Versatile winger, Joseph Malongoane made a brief return to action, following a devastating ankle injury, but has since returned to the physio’s table.

The 31-year-old has been trying to work his way back into the first team, but recent comments made by Middendorp suggest he is a long way off .from being seen in the famous gold and black.

Kabelo Mahlasela

Twenty-eight-year-old Kabelo Mahlasela has seen very little game time ince joining Kaizer Chiefs in 2018.

The midfielder has not made an appearance for the club in the ongoing campaign, despite recovering from an injury that kept him out of the latter stages of the previous season.

James Kotei

The Ghanaian midfielder was brought in at the start of the season, along with four other players who have all had their fair share of game time.

However, Kotei has not had the same opportunities and is yet to make his competitive debut for Kaizer Chiefs.
