Kaizer Chiefs confirm Lehlohonolo Majoro is on the way out

2013-12-19 16:09

Kaizer Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa today confirmed that striker Lehlohonolo Majoro will not extend his contract with the reigning Absa Premiership champions when it expires at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old former AmaZulu striker has been speculated to be on his way out following a lack of regular game time recently.

His fellow striking partners, Bernard Parker, Knowledge Musona and Kingston Nkhatha, have been given preference over him.

“Yes, Majoro is not going to extend his contract with Kaizer Chiefs, that’s all I can tell you for now,” Maphosa told Sport24.

“I’m not sure where he is going to, but he is considering leaving the club. But for now, he remains a Chiefs player.”

Earlier this week, the Phefeni Glamour Boys were rumoured to be bidding for the Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Edward Manqele, who is enjoying a loan spell at Moroka Swallows.

Manqele is second on the Premier Soccer League leading goal-scorers list with five goals, one behind Parker.

Chiefs are looking to boost their squad ahead of a tough CAF Champions League campaign next year.

Although the Brazilians reacted with shock to the claims, Maphosa said negotiations between the two parties had already started as Chiefs intend to have the former Free State Stars striker on board during the upcoming January transfer window period.

“We are in negotiations with his original club, Mamelodi Sundowns, for his services as we all know that he is on loan to Swallows.

“It might happen that we sign him at the end of the season, but our main objective is to have him during the next window period in January,” he added.

Since Majoro revealed his intentions to leave Amakhosi, he is now on the wanted list of their perennial rivals, Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United.

It remains to be seen where his next destination will be.
