Chiefs: No Nkhatha deal, yet
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have not yet completed a deal with Black Leopards
for striker Kingston Nkhatha, according to Amakhosi general manager
It was reported last week the two clubs and player had agreed
terms, with Leopards allowed to retain Nkhatha's services for one last
match, the 3-2 Confederations Cup defeat to Al Merreikh.
However, Motaung has now revealed an agreement has not been
reached, but that Chiefs will continue to pursue Nkhatha's signature.
"We will continue to engage Leopards over the services of
Nkhatha. It's true that we have not signed any deal with them but we
will continue to engage them," Motaung told The Sowetan.
Meanwhile, Leopards' boss David Thidiela reiterated Motaung's
stance, saying: "We have not finalised any deal with Chiefs and hence we
took Nkhatha along with us to Sudan. He played in the first half."
