Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that three players have inked one-year contract extension deals with the Sowetan giants.

Brylon Petersen, Philani Zulu and Siphelele Ntshangase have all put pen to paper on new deals that will keep them at the club until the end of the 2020/21 season.

"Foremost, I am emotional about it. I want to thank the chairman for this opportunity. I want to thank everyone involved in seeing that I can still contribute to this immense institution," Ntshangase said.

Zulu, meanwhile, said that he is grateful towards the club's chairman, Kaizer Motaung.

"I feel happy and grateful. All I can do to show gratitude and appreciation is to continue working to the best of my ability. I want to give back to the club. Thank you to the chairman," he said.

Goalkeeper Petersen said: "I'm excited about my contract extension. It gives me a chance to improve further and compete at one of the best clubs on the continent. It is an honour to be here!"

Meanwhile, Amakhosi have not mentioned whether outgoing midfielder George Maluleka will remain at the club to finish the 2019/20 campaign.

Maluleka signed pre-contract with Mamelodi Sundowns in January with his contract expiring at the end of June 2020.

However, FIFA has urged clubs globally to complete the season with the same squad before the enforced coronavirus lockdown that brought a halt to world sport.

It remains unknown whether Maluleka will complete the 2019/20 campaign before his move to the Pretoria giants.
