JOHANNESBURG: With the current soccer season nearing its end, there are some noteworthy names that could make their way out of their respective clubs and don different jersey colours next season due to different reasons.
Here are some of the big name players who could move:
Brilliant Khuzwayo (Kaizer Chiefs)
The Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper’s frustration at his lack of game time has reached its prime, leading him to reject a contract extension at the club. His agent Tim Sukazi has since confirmed that the Umlazi born keeper is on his way out of Naturena. He is heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates.
Anthony Laffor (Mamelodi Sundowns)
Laffor has seen little game time in recent seasons but with his age no longer on his side, he is likely to move to a club where he will get game time. He has been linked with a switch to Amakhosi for a long time and those links may materialise this time around.
Ayanda Gcaba (Orlando Pirates)
The former Free State Stars centre back is definitely on his way out of the Bucs camp as he has not been playing for a very long time. He had previously submitted a transfer request but no offer came about. With clubs now alert of the situation, he is likely to find a new home.
Ramagalela has been a revelation since joining rise and shine from Sundowns and is the leading goal scorer this season with 10 goals. There are rumours of interest from Gauteng-based clubs and the right offer may just see him moving back to the province.
Thabo Nthethe (Mamelodi Sundowns)
Towards the end of the previous transfer window, Pitso Mosimane said he was willing to let “Mr Cool” go. Clubs will now come in for the defender at the end of the season. He is linked with a move to his previous club Bloemfontein Celtics where he made his name one to reckon with.
Sibusiso Khumalo (Kaizer Chiefs)
The left back defender who joined the club from SuperSport United has seen little action under Steve Komphela and has been tipped to be heading for the exit door in search of game time. He will not be short of suitors as he still has a lot to offer.
