Swallows FC are keen to retain the services of three on-loan Kaizer Chiefs players for next season.

The GladAfrica Championship side were fighting for promotion before all sports activities were suspended as a result of the coronavirus lockdown.

They entered the break in second place on the league standings, with 41 points from 24 games, seven points behind leaders Ajax Cape Town.

Itumeleng Shopane, Ayanda Rorwana and Given Thibedi all performed well for Swallows, while on their season-long loan spell, with Swallows boss David Mogashoa hopeful they will stay.

He told KickOff: "The boys have done well. We are very happy with their contributions this season.

"We don't mind keeping them next season. We have developed a great relationship with Kaizer Chiefs.

"The players are currently on loan. They will decide at the end of the season. We would still love to keep them next season."
