Chiefs end Sangweni chase

2010-08-21 00:00

KAIZER Chiefs officially ended their interest in acquiring the services of Lamontville Golden Arrows defender Siyabonga Sangweni.

In a press release, Chiefs stated that their deadline for negotiations over the Bafana defender was yesterday.

Sangweni has been the subject of much debate in recent weeks, after it emerged that he had agreed deals with SA’s two biggest clubs, Chiefs and their Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates.

Chiefs seemed to have sealed the deal after Pirates withdrew their interest, but Arrows then hiked up the price for the 29-year-old central defender.

Chiefs baulked at the fee, rumoured to be in the R4-R5 million region.
