Kaizer chiefs show interest in signing Bafana Bafana midfielder



Kaizer chiefs are carefully supervised by Bafana Bafana and Sekhukhune United midfielder Yusuf Maart.

A source near the player that says that the Cape Town midfielder can make a contract at the end of the season if Babina Noko agrees.

Maart, a former Orlando Pirates player, has been a standout player for Sekhukhune since previous season, and he has also been selected by coach Hugo Broos several times for the team, as he is a senior national team member of South Africa.

It is believed that Chiefs are ready to take everything out for the 26-year-old midfielder, who has further 2 years on his deal with Sekhukhune.

The source also tells how pleased Maart is to join the leadership and he thinks he can do a lot in the Naturena outfit.

“Someone told him about the leaders who wanted to sign him some time last season, but he genuinely didn’t believe that.

After another man from the club inquired if he would be pleased to join chiefs a few weeks ago, he started believing.

So, yes, he’ll leave the club a great opportunity. However, until 2023, I guess, he still has a treaty, so we’ll see how things go,” the insider said.

Meanwhile, the goalie choice of Stuart Baxter as chief coach was more of a ‘finder finder’ approach in his second term.

In the six matches which the team has played thus far, Baxter utilised all four registered chiefs.

In the next two DStv premiership games BruceBvuma began in the MTN8 quarter-finals with Itumeleng Khune.

However, Bvuma was also removed in the game against Royal AM in favor of Brandon Petersen.

Baxter chose Daniel Akpeyi for the distant pick at the Marumo Gallants on the weekend, but with Royal AM unforgivingly scoring four Petersen at his debut.

And the Nigerian didn’t deceive him, for he kept the chiefs with some great saves in the game.
