Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mandla Masango has finally penned a new deal with the club after extended negotiations which saw 13 of his team-mates also sweating over their futures.

The South Africa U23 international, who joined the Naturena outfit in 2007, has struggled to hold down a regular starting place in the team, but that didn't dissuade him from signing a new three-year deal with Amakhosi.

Football manager Bobby Motaung told the club's official website: "We are delighted that Mandla has extended his stay. He has grown as a player since joining us couple of seasons ago. He wants to stay here and help the team win trophies."

Meanwhile, Tlou Molekwane has revealed his eagerness to get back to playing league football with the season set to resume on the 15th of February.

Chiefs currently lie in third place in the PSL standings on 28 points at the halfway stage of the campaign, level on points with SuperSport and just three points adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

The right-back made his return to action in a reserve fixture against Bidvest Wits after breaking his toe in October.

Molekwane said: "It was good to be back having spent time on the sidelines. It was tough but I like to believe I did my best against Bidvest Wits.

"I have been working hard at training and I have no doubt I will be raring to go when the league programme resumes middle of February.

"It is frustrating that every time I get a chance to play I get injured.

"This year I want to stay injury free. When I get a chance I want to cement my place in the team. I believe I can do this because I give it my all at training."
