Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League's Dispute Resolution Chamber has exonerated Kaizer Chiefs over claims that former player Siboniso Gaxa was owed compensation over an alleged existing contract.

Gaxa took Chiefs before the DRC after he was released before the start of the 2016/17 campaign, having claimed that he still had a binding contract with the Glamour Boys.

The right-back said he had extended his deal at Naturena for another two years and was therefore owed compensation over his early release. However, the DRC has found in favour of Amakhosi.

A statement published on the club's official website read: "The Chamber found no grounds supporting the player’s assertion that a binding contract still existed between himself and the club after he was released by Amakhosi in June 2016."

Meanwhile, the side's football manager, Bobby Motaung, added: "We are pleased that the DRC has exonerated us regarding Gaxa's contractual claim against us. The matter has finally been put to bed. We wish the player well in his future endeavours."
