Kaizer Chiefs have announced the departure of one of their strikers to GladAfrica Championship side Swallows FC.
Sizwe Twala, who was promoted to the first team squad at the start of the season, has been released and joins a number of other ex-Chiefs players at The Dube Birds.
Swallows are gunning for promotion from the NFD after a great start to the new year and are in fourth place, just seven points behind leaders Ajax Cape Town.
Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp explained earlier this month that some fringe players would not be able to play in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, and the 22-year-old Twala was one of them.
"I think at the moment, we should not think about releasing them. Unfortunately some players can’t play in the Diski team, like Sizwe Twala or [Happy] Mashiane, because of the age restriction," he said.
"But from the training side, we’re working with them; we keep them close to the first team, and I’m quite sure that certain players will even get a chance during the run of this season."
