Thabo Cele’s potential move to Kaizer Chiefs is getting closer, but a few details need to be worked out before the deal is finalized.
Cele, who was recently released by Ekstraklasa side Radomiak, has expressed a strong desire to join Chiefs, according to UnplayableZA, but some issues regarding his personal terms have yet to be resolved.
Despite the minor setbacks, sources close to the negotiations believe the agreement will be finalized by Saturday.
Chiefs, eager to bolster their squad ahead of the 2023-24 season, are hoping to sign the 26-year-old holding midfielder before their opening game against Chippa on Sunday at the revered Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Cele’s time in Poland was notable, as he appeared in 20 games for Radomiak last season. He also has an impressive international record, having played seven times for Bafana Bafana.
In other transfer news, Kgaogelo Sekgota, 26, is reportedly on the verge of joining Stellenbosch.
This move gives the creative winger the opportunity to make a big statement against Chiefs’ archrivals, Pirates, on the first weekend of the new DStv Premiership season.
Stellenbosch FC will face the Buccaneers on Saturday, 5 August, at 8 p.m. in what promises to be an exciting match.
As the transfer window draws to a close, football fans are anticipating these potential moves, which could have a significant impact on the dynamics of the DStv Premiership in the coming season.
