Mthembu not yet a Chief

Johannesburg - Outgoing Platinum Stars striker Siphelele Mthembu confirmed that he is yet to finalise his contract with Kaizer Chiefs.

Amakhosi have been rumoured to have completed a three-year deal with the Bafana striker this week as they aim to bolster their squad ahead of the new Absa Premiership season set to commence in August.

In an exclusive interview with Sport24, “Shaka Zulu” admitted that he is in talks with Chiefs and his move back to Naturena is imminent as the two parties are yet to agree on his personal terms.

“It’s not just a rumour,” said Mthembu.

“Yes there have been talks going on between me and Chiefs.

“But nothing has been finalised yet.

“We are still trying to negotiate certain things but hopefully all will go well.

“So for now, nothing has been finalised and nothing is official.”

The last time Mthembu played for Chiefs was back in the 2008/09 pre-season and his spell with the Soweto giants ended in controversial fashion.

Mthembu signed two contracts with both Chiefs and Pirates but the Buccaneers ended up having the rights to use the KwaZulu-Natal-born goal-poacher’s services as the dates on the contracts stated that he signed with the Happy People before the Phefeni Glamour Boys.

The 26-year-old player grabbed five league goals for Dikwena and also helped the North West Tycoons win a cup double last season.

Dikwena won the MTN8 competition and the Telkom Knockout Cup, beating Mthembu’s former team, Pirates, in both finals.
