The new faces that will be wearing the yet to be unveiled new Chiefs Kappa kit, are set to be the likes of SuperSport United centre back Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, while also being thought to have signed Mduduzi Mdantsane and Given Msimango. In the last two weeks or so, they have also been thought to have added the likes of Venezuelan international midfielder Edson Castillo, who is believed to be ready to join the club and boost their midfield ranks at the end of this month, when his contract with his current team expires.

But that is not all, as on Wednesday it was also reported that Chiefs had beaten their arch-rivals Orlando Pirates to the signatures of Golden Arrows winger Pule Mmodi and Marumo Gallants striker Ranga Chivaviro. Furthermore, both players made some very big decisions to ensure that they ended up at Naturena rather than Mayfair with Mmodi firing his agent who was pushing him to Pirates, while Chivaviro stood up for himself against Gallants chairman Abram Sello, who had originally sold him to the Buccaneers.

But besides the new players that are set to be announced by Chiefs, there have been lingering questions marks over two players veteran fan favourites at the club. Captain Itumeleng Khune, the longest serving member of the team is set to run out of contract at the end of the month, together with winger Khama Billiat. The duo have been the subjects of all types of rumours regarding their respective futures, but now, it looks like there will soon be clarity.

There has been talk of Billiat taking a huge pay cut in order to stay on at Chiefs, while the same has been said on Khune. Now according to the pictures of the players coming back during the week, both players are within the squad and are all smiles along their teammates. 

Big announcement on Khune and Billiat soon

Now that could mean that the club are still actively trying to find a solution for both Billiat and Khune to stay on beyond their current deals, or that those deals have already been wrapped, and an official announcement is coming soon. Or another possibility is that they are serving their final week on their Chiefs contracts, while negotiations continue behind the scenes. Either way, whether it is positive or negative, Chiefs will have to make two huge announcements on duo in about a week’s time.
