Golden Arrows are reportedly setting their sights on Kaizer Chiefs midfielder. Sources close to both clubs have hinted that Arrows may be exploring the possibility of acquiring Chiefs midfielder, who has found himself lower in the pecking order following the recent influx of new signings at Kaizer Chiefs.
Siyethemba Sithebe, who joined Amakhosi from AmaZulu FC in July 2022, is currently on the road to recovery from a knee injury. Despite this setback, the midfielder is said to be eager to reclaim his spot in the team. Golden Arrows, keen on reinforcing their squad in the upcoming January transfer window, have identified Sithebe as a potential addition to their ranks.
Insiders suggest that Arrows’ interest in Sithebe is not arbitrary; the midfielder had previously worked with coach Mabhuti Khenyeza, establishing a connection that could facilitate a smooth transition to the Arrows setup. According to a source, “Arrows want to strengthen the squad in January, and there are a few positions and players they are looking at. There is a striker from Argentina, and now there is interest in Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siyethemba Sithebe.”
While Arrows are keen on securing Sithebe’s services, there is a potential hurdle in the form of the midfielder’s injury status. A source revealed, “You know he is currently out injured, and that’s why he is not playing. He has a knee injury, but it’s not a serious one.” Arrows have reportedly inquired about Sithebe’s availability for a January move, aiming to finalize the deal when the transfer window opens.
Sithebe’s contract with Amakhosi runs until June 2024, adding an additional layer of intrigue to the potential transfer. Kaizer Chiefs, with the arrival of Edson Castillo, has seen increased competition in the central midfield position, with Sithebe vying for a spot alongside players like Yusuf Maart, Samkelo Zwane, and Sibongiseni Mthethwa.
