Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have announced that Reneilwe Letsholonyane will soon bring an end to his eight-year association with the Soweto giants.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who helped Amakhosi win the league title last season, is out of contract in June but will not be renewing terms at Naturena.

Letsholonyane made 21 league appearances for Steve Komphela's side this term as they relinquished the title to Mamelodi Sundowns.

During his stay with Chiefs, the former South Africa international lifted the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout trophies twice each, as well as the Nedbank Cup.

"We thank 'Yeye' for his valuable contribution to Kaizer Chiefs," read a statement from the Glamour Boys.

"We have shared many great moments together. May you continue to inspire and be a good example wherever your path leads.

"We would like to take this moment to wish you all the best in your future endeavours. We salute you."
