Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Frank Makua believes Wits captain Sibusiso Vilakazi is the best candidate to replace Reneilwe Letsholonyane.

The veteran Letsholonyane is leaving Chiefs at the end of the season, with many expecting the midfielder to join Stuart Baxter's SuperSport United on a two-year deal.

Vilakazi has long been linked with Chiefs, and Makua believes the club should move swiftly to seal the deal.

"I can't think of anybody (that can replace Letsholonyane), the only player I can think of is (Sibusiso) Vilakazi from Bidvest Wits that can play there," Letsholonyane told Soccer Laduma.

"He is not a box-to-box kind of player like Yeye. So, for me, I think they'll have to settle for Vilakazi."
