Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly set to release Gustavo Paez, Bhongolwethu Jayiya and Joseph Molangoane at the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

Paez has been frozen out of the first team under former coach Giovanna Solinas as well as current incumbent Ernst Middendorp.

The 28-year-old has made just seven appearances in the Premiership while scoring one goal.

Meanwhile, Molangoane's situation seems to be a heartbreaking one as he broke his leg in the early months of the campaign and he has been in rehabilitation ever since.

In addition, Jayiya's situation at Naturena is well documented with the winger making just six starts in two seasons since his arrival from Cape Town City.

All three players will see their deals expire in June and they will not be offered extended contracts, according to a Kickoff source.

The source said: "Paez is leaving. The club will finalise the list of all the players leaving at the end of the season.

"Jayiya and Molangoane are some of the players expected to leave the club at the end of the season."
