Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have renewed the contracts of five players, Captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, defenders Thomas Sweswe, Jimmy Jambo and midfielders, Abia Nale and Josta Dladla. Football Manager, Bobby Motaung revealed speaking to kaizerchiefs.com on Friday afternoon.

A visibly delighted Bobby Motaung said; “We are delighted that we have secured the future for the five players. I wish to emphasise that contract negotiations are opened a year before they end. However we have to respect that the players will look for the deals that secure their future and at times can take longer than anticipated.

“Josta Dladla has agreed on a one year deal with an option to renew for one year while the other four have signed three year deals. The latest developments will allow the Technical Team and players to focus on the Club’s objectives.

“Jimmy Tau is still away attending to his sister and we continue to put him in our prayers. We also extend our wishes to Reneilwe Letsholonyane who might be sidelined for the season. Despite this we are geared up for the challenges ahead,” added Motaung.

Meanwhile Siphiwe Tshabalala has also agreed to a three year deal with the Club and will sign on Monday as he is currently suffering from conjunctivitis and not at training.
