rumours circulating that both are headed for the exit door.

date at the Naturena club and are expected to announce his exit at their press
conference on Tuesday, June 2. Meanwhile, Stuart Baxter is expected to take up
a post with a Turkish club after submitting his resignation.
However, Schalkwyk doesn't believe either player is going
anywhere and feels they will eventually renew their contracts with the club.
"That's always the case at big clubs, especially when
they come off a good season like they have right now. You find these
contractual issues that can be very disturbing," Schalkwyk told goal.com.
"But I think with Chiefs being the professional club it
is, they will find a way of dealing with it and I believe both Mashamaite and
Khune will stay at the club."
The 33-year-old went on to admire the strength of the
current Chiefs squad and thinks they will definitely challenge for trophies
again next season.
