Whether it is a permanent move away from the club, or simply a loan move for the rest of the 2022/23 season, these Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns players could benefit from moving away from their respective clubs.

Gift Motupa

Now in his third season with Sundowns, after he joined from Bidvest Wits the 2020/21 season, Motupa arrived with a big reputation for scoring goals and was knocking on the Bafana Bafana door.

Despite having a fantastic 2021/22 season, Makhubela is finding minutes hard to come by at Pirates. The dribbling wizard has been linked with a move away from the Buccaneers.

Sandile Mthethwa

The Carling Black Label Cup was the perfect opportunity for Mthethwa to remind fans just what he is capable of, and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Composed in defence and deputizing for the injured Olisa Ndah, the 25-year-old proved his worth for Pirates.
