Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have released midfielder Lucky Baloyi on a free transfer as their ruthless transfer overhaul continues ahead of the new season.

After a second consecutive trophyless season, Amakhosi have acted swiftly by axing assistant manager John Pantsil and releasing out-of-contract striker Siphelele Mthembu.

Now defensive midfielder, Lucky Baloyi, is the latest to be shown the exit at Naturena with KickOff website reporting that the 25-year-old has accepted a settlement and received his clearance from the Premiership side.

After only five starts in the league for Chiefs last season, despite being handed a new two-year deal in February, Baloyi's agent Jazzman Mahlakgane confirmed the news with the local publication on Monday.

Since making his league debut for the Glamour Boys seven years ago, Baloyi has amassed 87 appearances in the Premiership with Chiefs and a season long-loan with Moroka Swallows during the 2014/15 season.
