Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa on Thursday confirmed that striker Lehlohonolo Majoro will not extend his contract with the reigning Absa Premiership champions when it expires at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old goal-poacher has been speculated to be on his way out following lack of regular game time in the last while.

His fellow striking partners, Bernard Parker, Knowledge Musona and Kingston Nkhatha, have been given first preference.

“Yes Majoro is not going to extend his contract with Kaizer Chiefs, that’s all I can tell you for now,” Maphosa told Sport24.

“I’m not sure where he is going to be but he is considering leaving the club but for now he remains a Chiefs player.”

Earlier this week, the Phefeni Glamour Boys were rumoured to be bidding for the Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Edward Manqele, who is currently enjoying a loan spell at Moroka Swallows.

Manqele is currently second on the Premier Soccer League leading goal-scorers list with five, one behind Parker.

Chiefs are looking to boost their squad ahead of a tough CAF Champions League campaign next year.

Although the Brazilians reacted with shock to the allegations, Maphosa revealed that the negotiations between the two parties have already commenced as Chiefs intend to have the former Free State Stars striker on board during the upcoming January transfer window period.

“We are currently in negotiations with his original club, Mamelodi Sundowns, for his services as we all know that he is currently on loan to Swallows.

“It might happen that we sign him at the end of the season but our main objective is to have him during the next window period in January,” he added.

Since the former AmaZulu striker, Majoro, revealed his intention to leave Amakhosi, he is now on the wanted list of their perennial rivals, Orlando Pirates, and SuperSport United.

It remains to be seen where his next destination would be.
