Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are in negotiations to release strikers Siphelele Mthembu and Edward Manqele from their contracts at the Naturena-based club.

The pair have failed to hit the heights expected of them during their time at the Absa Premiership side and will seemingly be let go in the near future by the Glamour Boys.

Mthembu and Manqele have managed just two league goals in total between them in their time with Chiefs. As such, Chiefs' football manager Bobby Motaung has confirmed their imminent exit.

He told the club's official website, "Manqele and Mthembu have had ample time to exert themselves in the team. Unfortunately things didn't go as anticipated. Therefore, we are busy negotiating an exit deal with the two players.

"We hope everything will go smooth and the two players will have a chance to continue their careers elsewhere."
