According to Soccer Laduma, the midfielder has been performing well since being promoted and an unnamed source reveals that the player has inked a contract which will run until 2018.
“He is one of the most talented midfielders at Chiefs at the moment. At the start of the season he was promoted, but they were still using an academy contract. The club has now given him a three-year first team contract,” said the source.
“The coach believes in him and soon he will feature for the first team and people will see what a great player he is.
“His contract will run until 2018 and they don’t want to loan him out as the coach really wants him to play here.”
