Clarification on Siphesihle Mkhize’s Potential Transfer to Kaizer Chiefs: Agent Addresses the Rumors

6 Min Read

Ntobatsi Masegela, the director of Footballerz Sports Marketing and agent to Siphesihle Mkhize, has clarified recent rumors about his client potentially transferring to Kaizer Chiefs. Speculation had been circulating that Mkhize, a standout midfielder for Sekhukhune United during the 2023/24 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season, might be on his way to the Amakhosi.

Mkhize has played a crucial role for Sekhukhune United, consistently earning a place in the starting lineup and contributing significantly to the team’s midfield performance. His steady and dynamic presence has not only caught the attention of fans and analysts but also fueled speculation about his future in the league.

Given the prominence of Kaizer Chiefs in South African football, any rumor suggesting a connection between the club and a rising star like Mkhize naturally attracts attention. However, Masegela has stepped forward to address these rumors, emphasizing that while Mkhize’s performances have drawn interest, there’s currently no official discussion or agreement regarding a transfer to Kaizer Chiefs.

Masegela’s clarification aims to quell the growing rumors and ensure that Mkhize remains focused on his current role with Sekhukhune United. The agent’s statement suggests that while Mkhize’s future holds great potential, any talk of a move to Kaizer Chiefs is premature at this stage.

Siphesihle Mkhize’s outstanding performances on the field have sparked significant speculation about his future, leading to reports suggesting that he might be leaving Sekhukhune United in the near future. This has created a buzz among fans and football analysts, wondering where the talented midfielder might end up next.

Mkhize, who is affectionately called ‘Busquets’ by his fans and teammates, joined Sekhukhune United on a permanent transfer from DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns in July 2023. Since then, the central midfielder has made a notable impact, earning a regular spot in the starting lineup and showcasing his skills in 29 appearances across all competitions for the Limpopo-based club.

His journey to Sekhukhune began with his rise through the ranks of Mamelodi Sundowns’ youth development program. Mkhize’s talent and potential were quickly recognized, leading to his promotion to the first team under the guidance of then-head coach, Pitso Mosimane. Despite this early success, Mkhize’s career took a winding path. He was loaned out to Ajax Cape Town and later to Chippa United, gaining valuable experience and honing his skills during these stints.

The turning point came in 2023 when Mkhize signed a permanent deal with Sekhukhune United. His consistent performances and versatility in midfield have been instrumental in the team’s successes and have attracted the attention of other clubs. Given his achievements and promising trajectory, it’s no surprise that rumors about a possible move have gained momentum.

However, despite the speculation, there’s no confirmation or official announcement regarding Mkhize’s exit from Sekhukhune United. The club and his agent are staying tight-lipped about any potential transfer, preferring to focus on the present and Mkhize’s ongoing contributions to the team. As the speculation continues to grow, all eyes will be on Mkhize and his next steps in the world of football.


Have Kaizer Chiefs Reached Out To Siphesihle Mkhize?

Local media reports have linked Mkhize with Chiefs, but his agent, Masegela, has revealed that no talks have been held with Amakhosi.

“Siphesihle Mkhize is contracted to Sekhukhune United and we thank the club for believing in him. The fact that they bought him out of Sundowns meant a lot about how they rate him,” Masegela told FARPost.

“I mean you can see that the move has worked perfectly for both the player and club. Mkhize has managed to play regular football at Sekhukhune, and you can see how the team is doing.

“And you know when a player is doing well, the so-called big teams are going to sniff around. But I can tell you know we haven’t engaged Chiefs over the transfer of Mkhize.

“However, I always say with all my players, they are ambitious players who are looking to improve their game. So, all the interest in Mkhize has to be directed to Sekhukhune. I’m sure with the right offer, the club give him their blessings.”
